Postdoctoral Research Scientist – Epitranscriptomics

Target Discovery Institute, NDM Research Building, Old Road Campus, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7FZ

We are hiring new talent to join our research team here at the Target Discovery Institute, Nuffield Department of Medicine. The Song research group aims to decode the chemical modifications of our genome, transcriptome, and proteome in human health and disease – cancer in particular – and translating this information into diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities that ultimately benefit patients.

Within this role, you will be responsible for managing your own academic research and administrative activities. This involves small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. You will be tasked with adapting existing and developing new scientific techniques and experimental protocols as well as testing hypotheses and analysing scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate. You will also be collaborating in the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles and occasionally present papers and posters. Finally, you will act as a source of information and advice to other members of the group on scientific protocols and experimental techniques.

It is essential that you hold a relevant PhD/DPhil (or close to completion) in Molecular Biology/ Biochemistry/ Biology/ Chemistry or a related scientific subject. You will have experience in epitranscriptomics or RNA biology and experience of actively collaborating in the development of research articles for publication, in a relevant subject (such as epitranscriptomics or RNA biology). You will also have a strong skill set in standard Molecular Biology/Biochemistry/Cell Biology techniques and experience of communicating results clearly and logically as part of a diverse research team.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.

This position is offered full time on a fixed term contract for 2 years and is funded by Ludwig.
