Deadline: 17 Apr 2017

A Postdoctoral Scientist in Molecular Biology is required to join Professor Colin Goding’s group at The Ludwig Institute, University of Oxford.

The research programme, funded by the Ludwig Institute, will initially focus on understanding the how signalling pathways and metabolism impact on phenotypic identity and senescence.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated Postdoctoral Scientist possessing experience in development and molecular biology and a PhD degree (or near completion) in molecular biology/biochemistry. Previous laboratory experience, good communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team are essential.

The research involves a wide range of molecular biology techniques including real time qPCR as well as in real time imaging, and growth of cells in 3D. Familiarity with a broad range of molecular and cell biology techniques, knowledge of gene regulation by lipids, experience in culturing melanoma cells, experience in Wnt signalling and a first author publication in a high impact journal, are essential.

As this project will involve working closely with our collaborators in Spain knowledge of the Spanish language would be an advantage.

You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post.
