We are recruiting a post-doctoral scientist to the Partners in Tau Initiative. The post-holder will contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between pathological tau aggregation and microglia in Alzheimer’s.
The successful candidate will be based at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford. The project will use human iPS cellderived microglia to study the processing of tau protein by these cells. It will involve close liaison with our Partners in Tau collaborator, Kenneth Kosik and his lab, Santa Barbara, University of California.
The ideal candidate will have, or be close to completion of, a Ph.D in neuroscience, cell/molecular biology, immunology or equivalent experience/qualification, with experience in cell culture (preferably iPS cells), setting up cellular assays (preferably including image-based experiments) and preferably with experience in protein biochemistry and/or CRISPR-based screening/bioinformatics. The candidate will be highly motivated, organised, with the capacity to think creatively.
You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests and experience, CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is Friday 21 April 2023 at midday. Interviews will be held shortly thereafter.
