Salary range: £39,550 – £46,410 per annum
Full time, fixed term until 30 November 2016
Applications are invited for the post of Research Fellow interested in studying the interface between angiogenesis and osteogenesis.
Blood vessels are an important component of the skeletal system and they interact with several cell lineages associated with that microenvironment. The growth of blood vessels and bones are intimately linked during development. In particular, blood vessels can provide the niche necessary to promote the maintenance and proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells. We are looking for a candidate to develop an internationally competitive independent project to study the relationship between angiogenesis and osteogenesis using mouse models and taking advantage of cutting-edge imaging and molecular biology techniques.
You should have a PhD or postdoctoral experience in angiogenesis and osteogenesis or a closely related subject, and a track record in cutting-edge research, with an excellent publication record for this career stage. Experience in generating and interpreting next generation sequencing data, working with animal models and advanced imaging are necessary for this post.
The position is full-time fixed term until 30 November 2016 and will be based within the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre at the Hammersmith Campus.
