We are seeking a talented scientist to work in the novel and exciting field of super-resolution microscopy to develop a detection method for proteins associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
A successful candidate is likely to have experience with either advanced microscopy methods, or have previously worked on protein aggregation disorders. Experience with single-molecule fluorescence techniques, programming (ImageJ, python, MATLAB, etc.) would be advantageous. The candidate should have an excellent academic track record commensurate with their career stage and experience.
Working with an international consortium of researchers (UK, USA, Italy), you will build on our previously published groundwork on the development of probes for characterising disease-related proteins. You’ll be based in the Edinburgh Single-Molecule Biophysics Group in the newly built Chemistry Hub in the Institute for Regeneration and Repair, and also work with international collaborators. The combination of academic supervision with milestone-driven research will provide you with the guidance and knowledge you need to develop your career. This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference to the future of medical science.
