Post-doctoral Research Associate (Fixed Term)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on May 02, 2018.

DNA repair is crucial in all living cells for the maintenance of genome stability. The majority of spontaneous DNA lesions arise from the intrinsic chemical instability of DNA and include thousands of DNA single-strand breaks (SSBs) that occur on a daily basis. If left unrepaired, SSBs can terminate gene transcription, leading to mutations, cell death and disease. We are interested in unraveling novel pathways involved in the signaling of SSBs and studying the links between deficiencies in SSB repair and progressive neurodegenerative diseases.

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Research Associate. The post-holder will join a vibrant research group based in the world-leading and well-resourced Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge, Central Cambridge. The main duties would be to carry out high-quality research that will be presented at local and international meetings and student supervision. This interdisciplinary project will cross boundaries between stem cell biology, biochemistry and neurodegenerative disease models.

The successful candidate should have (or be close to completion) a PhD in Molecular/Cell Biology, Biochemistry or a related field. Previous experience in the fields of stem cell biology and/or DNA repair would be an advantage. You should have a proven record of success in research and evidence of critical thinking.

Fixed-term: The position is available from October 2018 and will, in the first instance, be for 30 months.

Post-doctoral Research Associate x 2 (Fixed Term)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on May 11, 2018.

Post-doctoral Research Associates, two positions available: Genome-wide approaches to study transcription.

These opportunities arise through Professor Jussi Taipale commencing as the new Herchel Smith Professor of Biochemistry. The Taipale group based in the University of Cambridge, Department of Biochemistry, Central Cambridge will continue to work on transcriptional regulation; specifically, to understand how DNA sequences determine where and when genes are expressed. This effort will support the group in their second systems-level research area of elucidating control of tissue and organism growth. The research of the group will have impact on both the fundamental understanding of the regulation of gene expression, and on knowledge of the mechanisms that control cell growth during normal development and in pathologies such as cancer.

As part of the phased development of the Taipale group in Cambridge there are four positions initially available, two of which are Genome-wide approaches to study transcription.

The main duties will involve designing and performing genome-scale experiments in the area of regulation of gene expression and computational analysis of experimental results.

The successful candidates should have (or be close to completion) a PhD in Genetics, Biochemistry, Systems Biology, Computational Biology, Medicine or a related field. Applicants interested in any of the above research areas and/or interested in developing a novel research direction will be considered.

The selection processes will be conducted in June and the posts be available from 1st September 2018.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 24 months in the first instance.
