The Manchester Cell Matrix Centre (MCMC) brings together diverse research groups with academic, technology and computational expertise to overcome barriers in extracellular matrix research. Extracellular matrix is essential for multicellular life, it surrounds and supports cells and accounts for one third of our body mass. Defining the principles that govern the two-way interaction between cells and matrix is fundamental to understanding vertebrate development, healthy ageing, and identifying why tissue failure is a major factor in most chronic diseases.
Located at The University of Manchester, the Centre incorporates one of eight Discovery Research Platforms recently awarded by the Wellcome Trust. The Discovery Research Platform for Cell-Matrix Biology will address practical, technological, and methodological barriers to understanding how changes in the extracellular matrix leads to tissue failure.
We are seeking driven and ambitious individuals to play a pivotal role in overcoming these barriers. Successful candidates will contribute to our bold vision to reprogramme extracellular matrix, which has the potential to lead to innovative new diagnostic tools and treatments for diseases such as cancer and fibrosis. The Platform will embrace a Team Science approach and provide an exciting opportunity to work with groups from diverse research areas and collaborate across disciplines.
You will bring computational biology and/or mathematical expertise to the analysis of data and experimental design. You will work with researchers in the laboratory and Core Facilities to analyse a variety of data including bioimaging, proteomics and genomics. You will build new theoretical and computational models to aid discovery and inform and improve experimental design.
