The Centre for Functional Genomics is recruiting a fixed-term Postdoctoral Researcher in Functional Genomics until 30 August 2026. To start as soon as possible.

The overall purpose of the role is to lead an ambitious, BBSRC-funded project which aims to establish a biological resource to enable the in-depth study of transcription factor function in Drosophila by generating and injecting a collection of plasmids to allow the CRISPR-mediated endogenous tagging of all Drosophila transcription factors with an exchangeable epitope.

You will be responsible for:

- Collaborating closely with the line manager and other team members on the research project to establish a collection of transgenic Drosophila lines with tagged transcription factors

- Designing transgenesis constructs and help with their molecular cloning and helping to generate transgenic fly strains

- Performing immunostains on different Drosophila tissues and confocal imaging of the samples to analyse transcription factor expression patterns

- Performing genome-wide transcription factor binding site analysis using CUT&RUN sequencing

- Populating and maintaining a database with imaging and binding profile data

- Assisting with the preparation of manuscripts for publication and presenting data at conferences.

As Postdoctoral Researcher in Functional Genomics you should have:

- PhD in Genetics, Developmental Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or equivalent

- Experience with general molecular biology methods, especially molecular cloning

- Experience with the preparation of scientific publications

- Good knowledge of Drosophila biology, eukaryotic gene regulation, CRISPR- mediated transgenesis

- Experience in functional genomics techniques such as ChIP-seq and/or CUT&RUN sequencing and the analysis of functional genomics data

- Experience in immunostaining and confocal microscopy.
