5624| Queen Mary University of London, School of Biological and Chemical Sciences| Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in Honeybee Epigenetics| School of Biological and Chemical Sciences
Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in Honeybee Epigenetics
Ref: QMUL4243

A Postdoctoral Research Assistant position is available in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). Working with Dr Paul Hurd, you will examine the role of chromatin in honeybee development and behaviour. The project is funded by the BBSRC for 3 years.

The Hurd group (http://www.sbcs.qmul.ac.uk/staff/paulhurd.html) aims to understand how the environment shapes phenotype through epigenetic mechanisms. We are particularly interested in how nutrition directs changes in chromatin structure through histone post-translational modifications. In addition to the ecological and agricultural importance of the honeybee, larval development represents one of the most striking examples of phenotypic plasticity in any organism. We have recently established that honeybees have extensively modified histones (Dickman et al, 2013). In collaboration with Prof. Ryszard Maleszka at the Australian National University (http://biology.anu.edu.au/Richard_maleszka/) we are now investigating the functions of histone modifications during the establishment of distinct castes during honeybee development and also in complex behaviour. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to engage in this project using a variety of molecular biological, genomic and bioinformatic techniques. In addition, there will be the opportunity to travel and work in Canberra, Australia. The successful candidate will have a PhD in molecular biology, preferably with a background in chromatin biology. Experience in the analysis of histone modifications, ChIP and ChIP-Seq, is highly desirable. Candidates with additional experience in the analysis of genome-wide datasets are particularly encouraged to apply. A demonstrable ability to develop your own research through to publication is also desirable as evidenced by a publication in a peer-reviewed international journal or in press. Appropriate training will be provided as part of our commitment to develop the careers of our researchers.

Ranked very highly in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, Queen Mary is one of the largest colleges in the University of London and with a budget of £285 million per annum is one of the UK's leading research-intensive institutions, having joined the Russell Group in 2012. The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences includes dynamic and productive groups working on other social insects and our environment also offers rich opportunities for collaborative research with strong links to other Schools within the Faculty, including epigenetic-focussed groups at the Blizard Institute and Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

The position is full-time and available for 3 years. The salary will be in the range £31,113 - £34, 626 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Informal enquiries are encouraged; please contact Dr Hurd via email p.j.hurd@qmul.ac.uk

To apply, please visit the Human Resources website on http://www.jobs.qmul.ac.uk and search for reference QMUL4243.
Application enquiries should be directed to recruitment@qmul.ac.uk

Ref: 009013
Salary: Grade 6 £26,527 - £29,837 / Grade 7 £32,590 - £36,661 per annum


The Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation is seeking an outstanding postdoctoral researcher to join a leading team of researchers working on bacterial and viral infections of the respiratory tract.

The aim of this project is to develop and optimize a novel three-dimensional tissue-engineered in vitro airway model of the bovine respiratory tract by growing differentiated primary airway epithelial cells at an air-liquid interface. The model will subsequently be used to study host-pathogen interactions of selected bacteria and viruses (both individually and in co-infection studies) involved in bovine respiratory disease; the role of the pro-inflammatory innate immune response of the epithelial cells will also be investigated. The development of this model will have relevance to studies involving the interactions of human pathogens with the human respiratory tract.

Applications are particularly encouraged from candidates with experience in the use of tissue culture approaches, together with immunofluorescence and electron microscopy, for studying host-pathogen interactions.

You will be an enthusiastic, motivated, organised scientist possessing knowledge and experience in microbiology, respiratory biology or related fields with an ability to produce work suitable for publication in international peer-reviewed journals. Applicants must have, or expect to have, a PhD, together with a desire to undertake cutting-edge scientific research. Excellent communication skills with the ability to present results clearly and logically, working co-operatively as part of a team as well as independently, are also essential capabilities for this post.

This post is funded by the NC3Rs until 28 February 2017.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Robert Davies by phone on 0141 330 6685 or by email Robert.Davies@glasgow.ac.uk
