Grade 7: £29,541 – £36,298 p.a.

Description: We are seeking to appoint a Post-doctoral Research Associate who is committed, enthusiastic and enjoys addressing pioneering questions at the interface of cell cycle, DNA repair and genome integrity control, as a key member of the active research group of Dr Fumiko Esashi. The post is funded by the Wellcome Trust, and for up to two years in the first instance.

The project concerns the identification of novel factors involved in genome stability control and elucidating essential functions of the Rad51 recombinase in proliferating human cells; unique and powerful reagents generated in the group will be exploited to achieve this objective. We particularly welcome applications from those who are capable of performing comprehensive bioinformatic analysis of large datasets from quantitative proteomics or genome-wide ChIP-seq studies, and to assess hypotheses experimentally using a variety of cutting edge techniques including, but not limited to, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, and bioimaging, in a creative and insightful manner. Previous experience in a relevant research area will be a plus.

Requirements: Applicants will have a relevant PhD/ DPhil and experience in cell biology, biochemistry or bioinformatics.  You will have experience in presenting scientific work, both written and orally; strong organisational skills to plan experimental bench-work; ability to contribute ideas to new research projects and the generation of research funding; and the ability to work well as part of an interactive group as well as on self-contained projects.

For an informal discussion: please contact Dr Fumiko Esashi by email:

To Apply: Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a supporting statement explaining how you meet the job requirements, your CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.

Deadline: The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Thursday 31 October 2013. Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
