Postdoctoral Researcher in Molecular Biology of Hypoxia in Cancer

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Professor Adrian Harris’s laboratory at the Weatherall Institute for Molecular Medicine.
This project will involve using CRISPR libraries to investigate the mechanisms of survival under hypoxia and changes in RNA processing that occur in survival pathways in cancer. This will give excellent experience in CRISPR technology and screening and single cell analysis of hypoxia biology. The work will involve extensive functional characterisation and requires a high level of molecular and cell biology expertise.
You will be a postdoctoral level scientist with a DPhil in a relevant area with experience in the following: analysis of genes induced by hypoxia and reoxygenation; spheroid assays; clonogenic assays and screening of genes by barcoding analysis; mitochondrial functional analyses; organising lab consumables, producing and interpreting financial reports integrating multiple grants; day-to-day running of a laboratory, training students in ordering supplies and tissue culture training; experience with Seahorse equipment; knowledge of hypoxia biology and pH regulation of tumours.
This is a full-time post available until 30 September 2018 with the possibility of extension for a further 2 years.
All applicants must complete a short application form and upload a CV and supporting statement.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 8 May 2017.
