We are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral research assistant to work on a BBSRC-funded project studying the structure and function of pathogenicity islands in a parasitic nematode.
This novel project will work at the interdisciplinary interface of parasite biology, population genomics, and predictions of protein function, providing the successful applicant with a state-of-the-art skill set in parasite biology research. This work is collaborative between the Department of Evolution, Ecology and Behaviour and the Department of Biochemistry and Systems Biology in Liverpool and with the University of Bath.
We welcome applicants with experience of bioinformatic analysis, or population genetics, or protein structure predictions. A field or laboratory background in parasite or pathogen biology would be useful but is not essential. You should have a PHD in a relevant subject.
Any applicants who are still awaiting their PhD to be awarded should be aware that if successful, they will be appointed at grade 6, spine point 30. Upon written confirmation that they have been successful in being awarded their PhD, they will be moved onto grade 7, spine point 31 from the date of their award.
The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received.
