Postdoctoral Research Associate in Gene Regulation
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic individual as a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join dynamic research group in Oxford to lead a multidisciplinary project investigating the role of transcription factors as well as chromatin modifying enzymes in gene regulation. The proposed projects will utilize state-of-the-art biochemical and structural approaches, combined with the functional genome-wide analysis, to understand how transcription of protein-coding and non-coding genesis is regulated in yeast and mammalian cells.
Applicants should possess a PhD, or expect to obtain soon, a PhD in a relevant subject area, and should have experience in _expression_ and purification of recombinant and native protein complexes. Experience with biochemistry is essential, as well as excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and result. Experience with mammalian cell culture and bioinformatics would be advantageous.
This full-time fixed-term post is funded by the Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship for up to 1 year in the first instance, and is based at the Department of Biochemistry, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3QU.
This position is graded on the University's grade 7 scale, for which the salary range is £31,076 - £38,183 per annum. The actual starting salary offered will be based on qualifications and relevant skills acquired and will also be determined by the funding available.
