Description

Post-doctoral Research Assistant

OCDEM, Churchill Hospital, Oxford, OX3 7LE Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 per annum

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in the David Ray group within OCDEM on a highly prestigious Wellcome programme of research.

This programme builds on recent discoveries from our group, which have identified the importance of biological timing mechanisms in the resolution of inflammation, and the development of co-morbidities in chronic inflammatory disease. We are now building an interdisciplinary team of exceptional early career scientists to move forward in this field, and make the next major discoveries.

You will join a well-resourced team with a track record of major discoveries and moving fellows into permanent academic positions. We have unique and innovative models, both in-vivo and in-vitro, which allow entirely new biological insights into circadian control of inflammation, and energy metabolism. We make extensive use of genomics approaches, combined with computational biology.

We build on unique strengths coupling circadian biology and genomic science, and will use CRISPR, and genetic engineering approaches to investigate novel pathways regulating myeloid cell function. We can couple this genetic approach to chemical biology interventions, such as those we have recently pioneered to target circadian clock components.

Outputs: There is an expectation that the candidate will publish in high- impact journals, present at international meetings, drive project progression, and capitalise on the joint academic stakeholders at the Universities of Oxford, and Manchester. There is considerable scope to pursue exciting new biological pathways emerging from the discovery platforms.

You will have an interest in or experience of inflammation biology, energy metabolism, and circadian biology. Some experience of in-vivo physiology is desirable. A relevant PHD is essential, the post-holder will also be expected to have familiarity with statistical methods, previous publications and experience of presentations. The post-holder will generate and analyse novel, cell type targeted transgenic mice. They will also be expected to present work at national meetings.

The position is full-time and fixed-term for 1 year in the first instance, funded with a Wellcome Trust investigator award, which we will seek to renew with the possibility for extension.

The position will be based at OCDEM, Churchill Hospital, Oxford. The post is funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Please quote reference 152233 on all correspondence. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 18 August 2021 can be considered. Interviews will be held in the afternoon of 09 September 2021.
