We are recruiting a Research Technician to provide technical support for a programme of work investigating molecular mechanisms of pain in arthritis. Experimental work will be conducted at the William Harvey Research Institute.
The research group/centre
The Regenerative Medicine group is co-led by Professor Francesco Dell’Accio and Dr Eldridge. Research within the ReGen is focused on the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis and the molecular mechanisms of regeneration of joint tissues including cartilage and bone, with the ultimate goal to develop molecular therapeutics to achieve joint tissue regeneration.
Within the group at large, there is a wealth of expertise in animal models, molecular and cell biology. Our group thrives on a very strong and welcoming team ethos that fosters synergies and mutual support between the individual members.
The Centre for Experimental Medicine and Rheumatology offers state of the art laboratories and is in the heart of the City of London. The Centre is integrated into the Rheumatology department at Barts and the London NHS Trust offering unique translational opportunities.
The candidate will have a BSc and experience of cell biology, histology, and molecular biology. Experience of animal experimentation is highly desirable, particularly in the area of osteoarthritis. The candidate will be strongly supported to develop skill sets in arthritis models and pain behaviour tests in mice as well as in molecular biology skills. The candidate will have good interpersonal and communication skills and is an enthusiastic team player.
