I seek a motivated candidate to work on a project applying sophisticated cell biological, genetic, biochemical and genomics approaches to study the regulation of the Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) signalling-responsive transcription network. This work will expand upon recent exciting discoveries revealing different tiers of regulation of this signalling pathway (Miles et al, 2008, Genes Dev 22, 2578; Wang et al, 2008, Nature 454, 72). The laboratory is located in a superbly equipped state-of-the-art institute, which provides a vibrant and exciting research-environment. You should hold (or expect to hold shortly) a PhD in Molecular Biology, Developmental Biology, Genetics or a closely related field with relevant experience in these areas. Experience in general molecular biology techniques and an interest in cell signalling and development are essential. Funded by the Wellcome Trust, this position is available immediately, and tenable for up to 36 months. Salary is in the range £28,983 – £31,671 p.a.
To apply: please send your CV, a cover letter and contact details of 2 referees to firstname.lastname@example.org . Informal enquiries are welcome.
