Research Assistant at University of Cambridge

A new opening postdoc position in molecular biology is available at University of Cambridge, UK. The funds for this fellowship are available for 24 months. Applications should be sent before October 17, 2018.

Applications are invited for a Research Assistant 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 growth control of a population of embryonic stem cells called neuromesodermal progenitors. The project will involve experiments using both zebrafish embryos and aggregates of mouse embryonic stem cells, or gastruloids.

We are looking for a highly motivated and well-organised person, with a first degree in biological or biomedical sciences and experience in molecular biology. 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 mammalian cell culture is essential and additional expression in zebrafish genetics would be desirable.
