Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Cellular Biology

University of Oxford - Sir William Dunn School of Pathology

Location: Oxford
Salary: £36,024 to £38,205 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 23rd February 2024
Closes: 15th March 2024
Job Ref: 171056

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the group of Professor Jordan Raff.  The main interest of the laboratory is to understand how centrioles, centrosomes and cilia assemble and function using the Drosophila embryo as a model system. In the laboratory we extensively use advanced live-cell light microscopy to understand the behaviour of these organellles, as well as many standard molecular, genetic, cell and biochemical techniques to study the functions of specific proteins.
 
The post-holder will primarily be involved in analysing the behaviour and function of various centriole and centrosome proteins using a variety of imaging and analysis techniques in living Drosophila embryos. Experience of handling and imaging Drosophila embryos, and with Drosophila husbandry and genetics more generally, is therefore essential. Familiarity with a broad range of imaging techniques and image-analysis software is an advantage, as is experience with modern molecular biology techniques.

You should hold, or be close to completion of, a PhD in biological sciences and be able to manage your own research project independently. You should have strong organisational skills and proven ability to keep accurate lab records, analyse data independently and communicate experimental data effectively to scientists from a range of disciplines.

The post is funded by Wellcome Trust and is available as a fixed-term contract for 1 year. If you are interested in this position, and have the skills and experience we are looking for, please apply below. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 15 March 2024. Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
