This post will be Fixed Term for 3 years

A 3-year postdoctoral research position (with the possibility of extension), funded by the Wellcome Trust, is available in the laboratory of Dr. Brian Stramer at King’s College London. The project will be carried out in collaboration with members of the Cell Motility and Cytoskeleton Group of the Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics.

This interdisciplinary project aims to investigate the role and regulation of Contact Inhibition of Locomotion by developing in vitro models using a variety of physiologically relevant cell types (see recent publication below). The post holder will use a combination of advanced imaging techniques and assays to infer intracellular forces to test the molecular and mechanical signals underlying this process. They will also collaborate with scientists investigating the in vivo functions of contact inhibition in order to understand the role of this process in .

The successful candidate will have a PhD in and have strong experience with cell motility models and/or the of the cytoskeleton.
