About us

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced scientist to join UCL as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, working in the Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (LMCB), a research-intensive Division in the Faculty of Life Sciences, located at the heart of UCL’s Bloomsbury campus.

UCL is ranked No. 9 in the World for Life Sciences and Medicine (QS Rankings 2024). The Faculty of Life Sciences is one of the largest in UCL with over 900 staff and 3,500 students and a diverse portfolio of research and teaching.

The LMCB has an international reputation for research excellence in cell and tissue biology and innovative education programmes. The LMCB provides a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary research environment, housed in a single building, where staff and students work together to understand the fundamental principles of cell and tissue biology relevant to human disease.

About the role

The Delas Lab, funded by Wellcome, aims to understand the cis-regulatory mechanisms controlling developmental cell fate choice. The postholder will investigate how gene regulatory elements control gene silencing during development. To deliver this role effectively you will need a combination of excellent understanding of molecular and cell biology with a special focus on developmental and stem cell biology as well the ability to establish effective and collaborative relationships.

Role specific details:

  • This role is available to start from 1 May 2023 and is for three years in the first instance.
  • Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Grade 6B (salary £39,980 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD Thesis.
  • This role meets the eligibility requirements for a skilled worker certificate of sponsorship or a global talent visa under UK Visas and Immigration legislation. Therefore, UCL welcomes applications from international applicants who require a visa.

About you

The successful candidate will be part of the collaborative Delas research team studying cis-regulatory mechanisms in neural tube development, from molecular mechanisms to the in vivo phenotypic consequences of pertubing this regulation.

The candidate should possess:

  • a PhD in a relevant biomedical discipline, or a concrete plan to defend a PhD thesis within a short timeframe.
  • a good knowledge of developmental biology or stem cell models of differentiation
  • an extensive knowledge of research techniques and methodologies related to gene expression and epigenetic analysis at the genome-wide level
  • experience in data analysis (e.g. bioinformatics, image analysis)
  • a good research track with a record of high-quality publications, collaborations, and other contributions to the scientific community
  • experience of leading and managing a research project
  • ability to demonstrate a deep knowledge of own research background and to effectively communicate research achievements to a specialist and to a lay audience
  • willingness to contribute to a supportive and collaborative environment among team members and to advocate for and promote a culture of equality, diversity, and inclusion among colleagues and other LMCB members.

The advert will close on 14th March at 23:59 GMT, however we may close applications early if we receive a high volume of applications. Early application submission is recommend
