We are recruiting an ambitious, self-motivated Research Associate to join the Maternal and Fetal Health Research Centre which consists of a collective of internationally renowned clinician scientists and researchers in the area of pregnancy research.

The successful candidate will work collegiately to build on the centre’s previous work showing that watermelon EVs (WMEVs) can, via interaction with the intestinal epithelium, immune system and microbiome, influence key aspects of trophoblast behaviour required for successful placentation.

Candidates must have, or be about to obtain, a PhD or equivalent and interdisciplinary research experience, centred on reproductive biology and pregnancy.

Successful candidates may be subject to pre-employment screening carried out on our behalf by a third party. The offer of employment will be dependent on the successful candidate passing that screening.

Please refer to the particulars of appointment for further details.
