We seek to appoint an ambitious Research Associate to work on a research project elucidating a signalling pathway governed by the imprinted genes Dlk1 and Grb10.
The pathway regulates fetal growth, lean to adipose body proportions and energy homeostasis, with relevance to growth disorders, obesity and diabetes. The successful candidate will use mouse genetic, biochemical and cell biology approaches to identify key additional pathway components. They will join the group of Prof. Andrew Ward on the main campus at the University of Bath.
A PhD in a relevant subject is essential along with a strong background in cell biology and signalling biochemistry. Experience in mouse genetics and/or embryology, or in RNA-seq or proteomic data analysis, would be an advantage.
This is a fixed term contract for up to 3 years funded by the Medical Research Council.
For further details about the role please contact Prof. Andrew Ward (firstname.lastname@example.org), however, please ensure that all applications are submitted via the University website, attaching a copy of your CV. Apply via the URL:
