We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative scientist with a background in molecular and cellular biology.

The post holder will investigate molecular mechanisms underlying human disease using a range of in vitro models. You will provide support to the team and to help develop improved experimental approaches to detecting gene and protein expression .
