Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Grade 7: £29,541 – £36,298 with a discretionary range to £39,649 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy Postdoctoral Fellow to work jointly with Dr Sergi Padilla-Parra’s group and Professor E Yvonne Jones’ group.

Description:You will be developing new methodologies in advanced fluorescence microscopy to be applied to specific biological problems related to cell-cell communication and signalling systems. You will develop novel quantitative fluorescence microscopy approaches working closely with the Cellular Imaging Group at the WTCHG. Innovative methods will be developed using novel fluorescent proteins, FRET standards (i.e. donor-acceptor tandems) and labelling strategies (for example using Snap-Tag technology). In collaboration with Professor Jones’ group you will apply these novel approaches in integrated structural and cellular level analyses of the molecular mechanisms responsible for cell-cell communication.

Eligibility: You will have a PhD/ DPhil in biophysics, physics or engineering or in a relevant discipline. You will have a strong publication record and familiarity with the existing literature and research in the field. You will have knowledge and experience of the recent technical advances in FLIM, FCCS and super resolution light microscopy in programming and hardware device control. Strong programming skills with Matlab or similar platforms are required to integrate all Image analysis (FLIM, FCCS, SPT and Localisation Microscopy) into one easy-to-use software for the Cellular Imaging group. You will have significant experience in digital imaging and data analysis (both with commercial and custom made software)

The post is funded by the Medical Research Council and the Wellcome Trust and is available for 2 years in the first instance.

Please quote reference 109947 on all correspondence. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.

Deadline:Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Friday 18 October 2013 can be considered.
