AResearch Associate in Cell & Developmental Biology or Biomechanics is sought to contribute to an interdisciplinary project investigating how tissues respond to mechanical force. The post will be based in the Woolner Lab, Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell-Matrix Research, Faculty of Biology, Medicine & Health and will work closely with collaborators in the Faculty of Science & Engineering.
The successful candidate will use established techniques to apply reproducible mechanical force to live tissues and determine cellular response. A particular focus of this role will be to develop approaches to analyse global changes in the proteome and phosphoproteome in response to tissue stretch, with the aim of providing new insight into mechano-regulation.
Essential skills: Hold (or expect to shortly hold) a PhD or equivalent in biological sciences; experience in proteomic analysis of cells/tissues, excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Experience of live confocal imaging is highly desirable.
The position is available from 3rd April 2023 and is full-time, but applications from individuals seeking flexible working arrangements are also welcome.
