Location: South Kensington Campus
A three-year Research Associate position is available to join the laboratory of Marco Trizzino in the Department of Life Sciences, based at the South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London.
The Trizzino lab employs induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) differentiation and functional genomics to study developmental gene regulation, with particular interest for human craniofacial and neural development.
Duties and responsibilities
The main focus of the position will be to investigate how human-specific transposable elements have rewired the gene regulatory networks necessary for human neurodevelopment.
You should hold, or be near completion of, a PhD degree in biological sciences by the start of employment. It is essential that you have the ability to work as part of a team, the ability to develop and apply new concepts and a creative approach to problem-solving. You will also have excellent verbal and written communication skills.
Previous experience with iPSC culture/differentiation and genomics, including single-cell, would be greatly advantageous but not essential. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the laboratory, familiarity with computer programming would be appreciated but not required.
This is a full time, fixed term position for up to 36 months. You will be based at South Kensington Campus.
Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant.

Please complete and upload an application form as directed, uploading a cover letter and a CV, including names and contacts of 2-3 references.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research/
