|Salary:||£32,348 to £42,155 per annum.|
|Placed On:||2nd February 2023|

Fixed-term contract until 10 September 2024, 1.0 FTE.
A Research Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Prof Stephen Royle in the Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology, Division of Biomedical Sciences at Warwick Medical School.
The aim of this project, funded by BBSRC, is to understand the function of intracellular nanovesicles (INVs) in membrane traffic (Larocque et al., J Cell Biol 2020; Larocque et al. J Cell Biol 2021). We use imaging (light and electron microscopy), biochemistry, and gene editing to understand molecular mechanisms in human cells.
You will have a good honours degree and have (or expect shortly to have) a relevant PhD, plus experience in molecular cell biology, strong scientific interest and motivation. Evidence of scientific productivity (papers or preprints) is required, as is good knowledge of the lab’s work on membrane trafficking. This is a short-term contract with the possibility of extension.
If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (£31,411). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£32,348).
We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
Interview Date: TBC.
