Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

Applications are invited for a postdoc position in developmental biology to join University of Cambridge, UK. This position is available for 12 months in the first instance. Candidates are welcome before October 31, 2018.

Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate position, funded by the Wellcome Trust, to join an international team in the Department of Genetics in central Cambridge. The project is led by Dr Ben Steventon and is aimed towards understanding the role of mechanical forces in the growth control of neuromesodermal progenitors. The project will involve experiments using the precise spatio-temporal control of gene expression within zebrafish embryos.

We are looking for a highly motivated and well-organised person, with a PhD in Developmental Biology, ideally with experience in the study of mechanochemical signaling in the control of gene expression. The project will involve cutting-edge imaging techniques including the quantification of gene expression levels in situ, and the development of tools for manipulating gene expression levels within single cells in vivo. Experience in zebrafish micro-manipulation and oocyte maturation, gene-editing technologies and confocal imaging is essential. Experience in biochemical techniques such as protein extraction and purification are desirable.
