We are seeking an enthusiastic and proactive postdoctoral research scientist to join a world-leading laboratory, working on the sensing and signalling of oxygen levels in cells and reporting to Professor Peter J. Ratcliffe and Associate Professor Tammie Bishop.
The work has broad relevance in biology and direct relevance to many or most human diseases, including heart and lung disease, stroke and cancer.
You will be responsible to manage your own academic research and administrative activities. This involves small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. You will adapt existing and develop new scientific techniques and experimental protocols, and also test hypotheses and analyse scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate.

It is essential that you hold a PhD/DPhil (or close to completion) in biochemistry, cell biology or related discipline, together with the ability to manage a research project, work accurately and maintain good records. You will have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings and the ability to contribute ideas towards project development.
