Postdoctoral fellow opening in the Sampath lab, University of Warwick, United Kingdom

Posted by , on 27 January 2023

Location: University of Warwick

Closing Date: 28 February 2023

A postdoctoral fellow opening is available in the Sampath laboratory at Warwick, UK for a BBSRC-funded project focussing on development of the extra-embryonic yolk syncytial layer in Zebrafish. The project combines high resolution imaging, with molecular, cellular, and developmental genetic approaches, including spatial transcriptomics, spinning disk confocal and multi-photon imaging. 
The PDRA will be a creative, ambitious and motivated researcher with a recent PhD in cell/molecular biology and good understanding of developmental biology in a model system. Ideal candidates will have an excellent publication record in cell and developmental biology. Prior experience with Zebrafish, spatial-transcriptomics and embryological manipulations is desirable, but not essential. Experience with quantitative analysis of imaging datasets will be an advantage. 
The ability to plan, execute and record scientific studies, solve routine problems encountered in research projects is essential, as also are excellent verbal and written communication skills. 
Informal enquiries regarding the project and the post can be directed to Professor Karuna Sampath ( 
Please send your CV including list of publications, contact details for 2-3 references, and a brief letter describing your research expertise and interest.
