We are seeking a Research Associate to join the lab of Dr Bernadette Carroll. The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic, ambitious team working within a thriving community of cell biology research labs working on various aspects of membrane dynamics and cell signalling at University of Bristol. The funds for this position are available for 3 years provided by BBSRC.
What will you be doing?
The project will define a role for non-canonical mechanistic Target Of Rapamycin Complex 1 (mTORC1) activity at focal adhesions. Specifically, the project will employ protein biochemistry, confocal and live-imaging, molecular biology and quantitative proteomic analysis to identify novel molecular mechanisms regulating mTORC1 at focal adhesions (FA). The candidate will establish the functional role of mTORC1 at FA in the context of cell migration and wound healing in cell and zebrafish models.
You should apply if
You should apply if you have a PhD (awarded or imminent, or equivalent professional qualification/experience) in a relevant field, and strong, demonstrable research experience in a molecular cell biology/biochemistry lab environment. Previous knowledge of mTORC1 signalling, autophagy and/or focal adhesion biology is highly desirable.
For informal enquiries please contact Dr Bernadette Carroll (Bernadette.firstname.lastname@example.org). Applicants are strongly advised to contact Dr Carroll to discuss the project prior to completing the application.
Our strategy and mission
We recently launched our strategy to 2030 tying together our mission, vision and values.
The University of Bristol aims to be a place where everyone feels able to be themselves and do their best in an inclusive working environment where all colleagues can thrive and reach their full potential. We want to attract, develop, and retain individuals with different experiences, backgrounds and perspectives – particularly people of colour, LGBT+ and disabled people - because diversity of people and ideas remains integral to our excellence as a global civic institution.
