Postdoctoral Research Associate in Transcriptional control of embryonic stem cell differentiation PS14181

Salary £ 27,578 – £35,938

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to investigate the molecular control of embryonic stem cell lineage commitment and differentiation. As part of the European Commission 7thFramework Programme Project “4DCellFate,” you will spearhead the lab’s effort to elucidate how cells use the biochemical complexity of transcriptional silencing complexes to derive cellular diversity from pluripotency.

For this position demonstrated experience in the analysis of transcriptional and developmental mechanisms will be required. The candidate is expected to have considerable expertise in molecular biological and biochemical techniques and in mammalian embryonic stem cell culture and manipulation. Previous experience in early mammalian embryogenesis and gene targeting is highly desired. The position will be in the Transcriptional Control of Stem Cell Fate Group and is available immediately. The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.

You should have been awarded a PhD degree or equivalent and have substantial laboratory experience.
