A Wellcome Trust/Royal Society funded Research Associate position is available in Dr. Kyra Campbell’s research group. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Campbell group, who are focused on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying epithelial cell plasticity during development and disease. We study this during morphogenesis of the Drosophila midgut (Campbell et al, Dev Cell 2011; Campbell and Casanova, Nat Comms 2015), and also in exciting Drosophila cancer models that we have recently generated (Campbell and Casanova, Plos Genetics 2018; Campbell et al, Nat Comms 2019).
We are combining single-cell OMICs approaches and deep-tissue imaging on our own labs dedicated multiphoton confocal microscope, with genetic approaches and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies. We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic candidate who will play a central role in the lab. You must have a good honours degree and a PhD (or be close to completion) in areas relevant to cell/developmental biology (or have equivalent experience), along with experience in in vivo imaging and image analysis. Applicants are expected to have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, be highly independent and committed to research in a fast-moving and competitive field.
