6164| Medical Research Council, Toxicology Unit| Postdoctoral Scientist - IRC198856| Postdoctoral Scientist – IRC198856
Fixed Term for 3 Years (vacancy ref: IRC198856)
Starting Salary from £28,648 per annum

The Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit, located at the University of Leicester, is an internationally renowned institution delivering field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease. The Unit is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and offers excellent opportunities for postdoctoral development.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Postdoctoral Scientist to join the Fibre Toxicity group to work on a cross-unit project investigating the pathways that are deregulated in malignant mesothelioma (a very aggressive and fatal cancer of the pleura or peritoneum strongly related to asbestos exposure) and the potential similarity in terms of hazard mechanism between asbestos and newer materials with asbestos-like characteristics such as carbon nanotubes. Currently, malignant mesothelioma is investigated collaboratively across three research teams in the Unit (‘Molecular Mechanisms of Cell Death’ Group led by Prof. Marion MacFarlane; ‘Post-transcriptional Control of Gene Expression’ Group led by Prof. Anne Willis and ‘MicroRNA regulation of Gene Expression’ group led by Prof. Martin Bushell). This research will focus on understanding and providing mechanistic insight into asbestos and carbon nanotube-induced molecular changes in the mesothelium and their potential to progress to malignant mesothelioma. This project presents an ideal opportunity to learn a range of state-of the-art in-vivo and ex-vivo techniques relevant to analysis of the mechanisms underlying fibre-induced pathology and carcinogenesis in both mouse models and primary tumour cells from patients - data obtained will have implications for improving the treatment of malignant mesothelioma

The successful candidate will have been awarded (or in the final stages of obtaining) a PhD in cell biology, biochemistry or related discipline. Experience in cell biology, cell signalling, molecular biology and biochemistry is essential as is a specific interest in cell signalling in the context of cancer/inflammation. Applicants must be committed to working at a highly competitive level, be able to communicate scientific ideas effectively and have published (or about to publish) in a peer-reviewed journal.

This post is intended for a postdoctoral scientist experienced in a relevant discipline. Alternatively, for those who have recently completed their doctoral studies (or who may be more experienced and moving into a new research discipline or with limited experience of key transferable skills) there is the opportunity to join the MRC’s Post-Doctoral Training Scheme. The scheme supports your career development with a range of formal and on-the-job training; over the three year period you will have a personal development plan, attend relevant training courses and identify additional training to help support and enhance your future career. The scheme will provide you with personal allowances of £1,000 initial settlement plus an annual training allowance of £850 increasing to £1,300 in year two, and £1,800 in the third year.

Closing date for applications: 31st August 2015.

Applications are handled by the RCUK Shared Services Centre; to apply please visit our job board at http://topcareer.jobs/Vacancy/irc198856_5546.aspx please upload your CV, covering letter and publication record (saving the documents with reference IRC198856 included in the filename).
