The role

A postdoc position is available to join the group of Eugenia Piddini to investigate the cell biology of cell competition in Drosophila.

Research in the Piddini group seeks to understand the mechanisms and function of cell competition and how it modulates cell colonization in tissues and organs.  We use an integrated approach that combines genetics and whole tissue in vivo studies in Drosophila with in vitro quantitative approaches using mammalian cells (http://research-information.bristol.ac.uk/en/person/eugenia.piddini). Our ultimate goal is to identify how cell competition can be harnessed to develop novel therapeutic strategies in cancer and in regenerative medicine.

What will you be doing?

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding post-doc to investigate the mechanisms and signaling pathways involved in cell competition using Drosophila genetics and in vivo models of cell competition. The project will investigate the cell biology underpinning cell competition. A focus of this work will be on the oxidative stress response and on proteotoxic stress, which our group have discovered are sufficient to induce the loser status and to trigger the elimination of cells activating this response by wild-type cells.

You should apply if

Applicants should be highly motivated and have a substantial track record of productivity and international experience. They should have a PhD in a relevant subject area or be close to completion of their degree.

Prior expertise in cell and/or developmental biology or experience in cell signaling are required. Prior experience with Drosophila models is favoured but is not required.

The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.

Additional information

Applications should include a CV and a brief statement outlining key areas of expertise and reasons why you would like to join our group. Informal enquiries can be addressed to Professor Eugenia Piddini: eugenia.piddini@bristol.ac.uk. Potential interview date is 15 April 2024.

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.
