Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the McEwan group at the UK Dementia Research Institute, University of Cambridge. The group uses cutting-edge techniques to understand how proteins become misfolded in the brain, and how the immune system can intercept this process. For more information, please visit www.mcewan-lab.com.
The role will involve the development of new models of Alzheimer's disease pathology in 3D human cell models. These models will be used to provide a deeper understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying pathological progression and for testing of new therapeutic approaches. The position is industry funded and will involve close collaboration with the Drug Discovery Unit at the University of Dundee. You will also be working alongside a research assistant whom you will oversee.
Desirable experience includes 3D cell culture techniques (eg organoids, neurospheres, slice cultures), generating and working with iPSC derived neurons, standard molecular biology techniques and confocal microscopy.
You will become a valued member of a world class team working at the forefront of neurodegeneration research.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.
