College of Health Wellbeing&Life; Science Academic Grade 7 - £38,205 - £42,978 per annum, dependent on experience

We are recruiting for a Research Fellow to work in our Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre (BMRC).

In this role, you will work within the carbon monoxide (CO) research group on an ambitious project looking at the impact of CO exposure on the brain.

Your role will be to lead on a major project to address this outstanding question, aiming to determine the mechanism(s) by which low-level CO exposures cause health issues in the brain over time.

The focus of your work will be on how CO impacts on embryonic brain development in a model organism (chick embryo).

Ideally, you will have a broad range of experience, but with a particular focus on developmental biology, neurobiology or cell biology.

You will have strong experience of laboratory science, including well- developed problem-solving, communication and facilitation skills.

Insight and experience of the use of model organisms, particularly the chick, would be an advantage.

You will be joining a multidisciplinary, active research group. The project will be based within the BMRC, a highly respected research centre with excellent facilities, and will be done in collaboration with the world- renowned Placzek lab at the University of Sheffield.

We are a welcoming and inclusive research group which comprises both staff and postgraduate students, and we are supported by the excellent technical team at the BMRC.

The BMRC holds an Athena Swan Silver Award.

This role is a funded role initially for 2 years full time, with the potential to be funded for a further 1.5 years.

We offer a diverse range of benefits and opportunities to pursue a rewarding and fulfilling career in a supportive environment.

You will be contractually enrolled into the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) – one of the largest and most generous defined benefit pension schemes in the country. Find out more about the TPS.
