2 x Research Fellow (103736-1121 & 103737-1121)

Updated: 2 months ago
Location: Coventry, ENGLAND
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 16 Dec 2021

Fixed Term Contract for 3 years

Research Fellow opportunities available in a friendly and productive lab seeking to understand how biomolecular motors work. We mostly use protein engineering to probe the mechanisms by which kinesin molecular motors and their microtubule tracks work together as force-generating molecular machines. The experiments will involve a range of techniques in biophysical cell biology, especially protein engineering, single molecule optical trapping, solution kinetics, super-resolution microscopy and microfluidics.

The lab sits within Warwick’s Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology, offering an outstanding environment for discovery science in one of the best universities in the UK. You will have a good honours degree, a relevant PhD and a demonstrable track record of productive hands-on experimental work in a relevant area.

Where you have not yet been awarded your PhD, any offer made to you will be an under-appointment to the post of Research Associate at a salary of £30,046 per annum. Once your PhD has been awarded and you have evidenced this, you will be appointed to the substantive post of Research Fellow at a salary within the range shown above.

Full details of the duties and selection criteria for this role can be found in the vacancy advert on the University of Warwick's jobs pages. You will be routed to this when you click on the Apply button.
