Postdoctoral Researcher

Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9DU

We are seeking to appoint an ambitious and creative Postdoctoral Research to join the lab of Professor Aarti Jagannath to work on a collaborative and interdisciplinary project with Prof. Andre Furger and our industrial partner Oxford Biodynamics.

Successful applicants will join an exciting research project that aims to understand how cool temperatures, such as experienced during torpor, affect the cellular circadian clock. The circadian clock is a fundamental cellular timekeeper that impacts on most aspects of the physiology of cells and organisms. This BBSRC-funded project builds on recent findings from our labs that identified a novel link between extreme cooling and the circadian clock. We aim to exploit these insights to unravel the molecular mechanisms that underpin the rhythmic expression of circadian core clock genes.

Essential selection criteria:

  • Knowledge and experience of circadian biology.
  • Previous work with mouse models.
  • Holds a DPhil or equivalent.
  • Capacity to plan and execute research programs.
  • Ability to present and write research articles.
  • Work within a team to deliver in a timely fashion.
  • Desirable selection criteria:

  • Experience with omics data analysis.
  • Experience with microscopy/live cell imaging.
  • Please see the below 'Job Description' for further details on the project, responsibilities, and selection criteria, as well as further information about the university and how to apply.

    This post is full-time and fixed for 3 years .

    Only applications received before 12:00 midday on 29th of May 2024 will be considered.

    Interviews are expected to be held as soon as possible thereafter.
