Investigating alpha1-antitrypsin phase transition in the endoplasmic reticulum
We are seeking a post-doctoral research associate to join the lab of Professor Stefan Marciniak in the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) to study the role of protein phase transitions in alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency. The Marciniak lab combines cell biology, biochemistry, and translational medicine to understand the role of proteotoxicity in human disease https://www.cimr.cam.ac.uk/staff/professor-stefan-marciniak .
The Alpha1-Foundation-funded post is at research associate (post-doc) level and so a PhD in a relevant discipline and expertise in mammalian cell culture are essential. Expertise in proteomics, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy or stem cells would be advantageous.
The successful applicant will use a variety of cutting-edge microscopy and proteomics techniques to understand the effects of protein phase transitions on function of the endoplasmic reticulum of iPSC-derived hepatocytes.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.
