Research Associate Scientist Microvascular Physiology

The University of Manchester - School of Medical Sciences

Location: Manchester
Salary: £36,024 to £39,347 per annum depending on experience
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 5th June 2024
Closes: 17th June 2024
Job Ref: BMH-025724

An exciting opportunity exists to carry out 12 months of post-doctoral research investigating the impact of septic shock on microvascular function. This position is co-ordinated across the laboratories of Dr Chris Stanley at the Heart Research Institute (HRI), University of Sydney, Australia and Dr’s Adam Greenstein and Harry Pritchard’s small artery group at the University of Manchester, UK. The post will be based within the Division of Cardiovascular Sciences at the University of Manchester.

Position details:

The research follows on from the recent work of Dr Stanley’s Nature 2019. 566; p548 and Nat Commun 2021. 12; p6626 and will use cutting edge vascular physiology techniques as used in Dr’s Greenstein and Pritchard’s lab’s (Circulation Research 2021. 128:p1279, PNAS 2020. 116;p21874 and Hypertension 2020. 75; p539). The appointed person will work with microvascular arteries taken from models of septic shock to understand how disease pathology changes membrane potential and calcium signalling. Such changes are hypothesised to drive disease-associated sustained vasodilation, and fatal hypotension. This research will utilise myography, electrophysiology, calcium imaging, and a range of microscopy techniques. As well as leading a project, the successful post-doctoral researcher will also be given fantastic opportunities to collaborate on other projects within the lab and/or within the host institute.
