Research Assistant at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is delighted to offer a postdoctoral researcher position in molecular biology. Candidates are welcome before December 07, 2018.

Applications are invited for this Wellcome Trust funded Research Assistant position to join an international team in the Department of Genetics in central Cambridge.

The project is led by 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. Experience in culturing of mouse embryonic stem cells, and their subsequent analysis by immunostaining and quantitative microscopy is essential. In addition, some experience in studying the role of metabolism in developmental processes would be desirable. It is essential that the candidate can demonstrate a high level of organizational ability with experience in data collection and database management.
