Postdoctoral Researcher - Arginine Methylation

We have a new and exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher, who will be part of an ongoing basic biology research project that aims to understand the role of arginine methylation on the E2F family of transcription factors. The postholder will undertake state-of-the-art molecular, cell biological and biochemical techniques, in order to explore the role of arginine methylation. Proteomics, genome wide analysis and RNA biology techniques will also be used. Precision and attention to detail will be crucial in order that the most convincing and reproducible scientific results are obtained.You will require a PhD in a relevant subject. You will also require relevant experience in biological research, preferably in gene expression and protein biochemistry. Experience with molecular biological techniques, (particularly protein expression and purification) is also essential.This is a full-time post and is available for a fixed-term of 3 yearsAll applicants must complete a short application form and upload a CV and supporting statement.The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Monday 6 March 2017.
