Research Associate/Fellow position (3 years) to work on a BBSRC funded project investigating cell fate regulation during mammalian gastrulation in the laboratory of Dr. Ramiro Alberio (U. of Nottingham, UK), in collaboration with Prof. Jennifer Nichols (U. of Cambridge, UK) and Dr Matt Loose (U. of Nottingham).
The project will investigate the molecular mechanisms of mammalian gastrulation. The project involves working with embryos and embryonic stem cells combined with next generation sequencing as a mean to understand cell fate decisions in early embryos. This post is suitable to candidates with experience in single cell RNA seq., embryology and micromanipulation. This post offers a unique opportunity to work in fast developing fields (stem cell biology, single cell genomics and gene editing) and to develop skills in state-of-the-art technologies.
Highly motivated and self-driven, with a PhD (or near completion) in cell/developmental or related biological science with experience in some of the following areas: stem cell biology (preferably hESC), single cell RNA seq, gene editing, and bioinformatics. Experience in embryo dissection, generation of transgenic reporter cell lines, gene targeting and other genome editing techniques are also relevant for the project.
