Applications are invited for a Research Assistant position, funded by the Wellcome Trust, to join an international team in the Department of Genetics in central Cambridge. The project is led by Ben Steventon and is aimed towards understanding growth control of a population of embryonic stem cells called neuromesodermal progenitors. The project will involve experiments using both zebrafish embryos and aggregates of mouse embryonic stem cells, or gastruloids.We are looking for a highly motivated and well-organised person, with a first degree in biological or biomedical sciences and experience in molecular biology. The project will involve cutting-edge imaging techniques including the quantification of gene expression levels in situ and the development of tools for manipulating gene expression levels within single cells in vivo. Experience in mammalian cell culture is essential and additional expression in zebrafish genetics would be desirable.
