Research Assistant at University of Cambridge

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral researcher position in molecular biology at University of Cambridge, UK. The funds for this position are available for 3 years. Potential candidates should apply before July 31, 2020.

The University of Cambridge wishes to appoint a highly motivated Research Assistant to join the group of Dr Rahul Roychoudhuri at the Department of Pathology (fully funded Pathology scholarships) and assist in the running of a well-funded research lab of approximately 8-10 scientists.

The research will provide a better understanding of how immune function is dysregulated in cancer and inflammatory diseases and aims to inform development of new immune-based therapies for patients with presently intractable disease.

You will be expected to oversee and provide technical support to the laboratory, alongside the group leader, and will be responsible for its day-to-day running. You will be responsible for overall management of the laboratory’s animal research programme, which includes managing the laboratory’s transgenic mouse colonies using a fully implemented electronic colony management system, liaising with animal technicians, coordinating commercial genotyping of transgenic mice and directly assisting with in vivo experiments. You will closely interact with other researchers within and outside the lab and be involved in the design and implementation of experiments and development of new techniques and research areas. You will also be involved in specific administrative and laboratory management tasks and opportunities will be presented to develop in this role.

Applicants must have a degree in Immunology, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology or a related discipline and experience of mouse immunology, including working with experimental mice, intravenous and intraperitoneal injection, tissue dissection and flow cytometry. Skills in molecular biology (molecular biology scholarships) and cell biology (cell biology scholarships) are also desirable. You will join a young and dynamic group, whose core values include enthusiasm, openness and integrity.

-Be responsible for the day-to-day running of the laboratory, including managing the laboratory’s mouse colonies in communication with dedicated animal technicians. Assistance with design and implementation of mouse immunology (immunology scholarships) experiments.
