Postdoctoral Researcher in DNA Repair Biology
Radcliffe Department of Medicine, MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, MRC Molecular Haematology Unit, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford
Grade 7: £33,309 – £40,927 per annum
THIS IS A RE-ADVERTISEMENT AND PREVIOUS APPLICANTS SHOULD NOT APPLY.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and ambitious Postdoctoral Scientist to join Professor Ross Chapman at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM).
The Chapman laboratory is world-leading in the study of DNA double-stranded break (DSB) repair in immune system development and tumour suppression using molecular and mouse genetics with reductionist molecular cell biology and biochemical approaches. The successful applicant will investigate the origins of haematological and developmental defects that result from cellular DSB repair deficiencies, and their relation to endogenous sources of DNA damage. In addition to working directly with Professor Chapman and his team, you will also work closely with other MRC Molecular Haematology Unit groups; especially Professor KJ Patel’s group and the FACS, Transgenics and Genome Editing Facilities.
You will hold a PhD (or near to completion: thesis submitted at time of application) in cancer or genome stability biology, molecular immunology/haematology or allied relevant area. Laboratory experience in molecular and cell biology, genetics (whole organism and/or genome editing) with experience and/or willingness to work with murine models and handle mice is essential.
You will have strong communication and organisational skills, with the ability to manage and independently drive, innovate and complete your own research and associated activities. Experience and/or willingness to work with murine models is essential, and bioinformatics expertise including dataset and coding in “R”, is desirable.
The post is available full-time and is fixed-term for 3 years, funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC). Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
The closing date for this position is noon on Monday 21 February 2022.
