We are looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Scientist under the supervision of Dr Olivia Casanueva. The research group is interested in finding the mechanisms underlying transcriptional inter-individual variability in genes that modulate lifespan and determining to what extent it explains individual-to-individual differences in the rates of ageing.
The successful candidate will work on elucidating the mechanisms of ageing using Caenorhabditis elegans as a model system. The multi-disciplinary research project will require testing predictions obtained from modelling approaches. The post-holder is expected to perform experiments using genomics, metabolomics and molecular biology.
Applicants may have (or be about to receive) a PhD in genetics, developmental biology, molecular biology, systems biology or related biological discipline with strong working knowledge of genetics and genomics. Applicants will need to demonstrate experience in molecular biology and/or molecular genetics. Experience using C.elegans would be highly desirable.
This is a limited term appointment with funding for this post expected to be available for a period of one year from April 2019.
A full job specification and role requirements can be found here hireful.
Closing date for applications is Thursday 28 February 2019.
