We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Researcher to lead a project using state-of-the-art techniques to study haematopoietic stem cell biology. You will work directly with 

Dr. Adam Wilkinson

and his team, and closely with other MRC Molecular Haematology Unit groups. The project will build on a recently developed long-term ex vivo haematopoietic stem cell expansion culture system (Wilkinson et al., Nature 2019; Nature Protocols 2020) and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing methodologies (Wilkinson et al., Nature Communications 2021).

You will hold a relevant PhD (or near to completion: thesis submitted) together with experience in haematology and/or stem cell biology. Experience in the core techniques for the project (molecular biology, genome engineering multicolour flow cytometry, stem cell culture and murine models) is essential. Bioinformatics expertise would be advantageous.

The post is fixed term until 31 March 2025, funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC).

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. As part of your online application, you will be required to upload a CV and a supporting statement detailing how you fit the selection criteria.
