We are seeking a motivated Research Fellow to join the Forrester Group at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine. This 3-year MRC funded project aims to study the molecular components associated with the erythroid island niche in normal and abnormal erythropoiesis. It follows on from our development of an in vitro model of the human erythroid island niche using iPSCs (PMID: 30787325).
The project involves collaboration with Profs Jan Frayne (University of Bristol) and Gavin Wright (Sanger Institute in Cambridge).
A good background in cell biology and some experience in cell culture, molecular biology and bioinformatics is desirable.
More information is available at University of Edinburgh Academic Vacancies (Ref: 050500).
