We seek to appoint a Postdoctoral Training Fellows skilled in microscopy or biophysics to the team led by Professor Jonathon Pines in the Division of Cancer Biology to use Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy to measure and analyse the behaviour of the proteins involved in the Spindle Assembly Checkpoint that regulates chromosome segregation. You will join a small, enthusiastic and friendly team analysing mitotic control, and will be given opportunities to use your own initiative and to work in collaboration with others.
Salary is dependent on relevant previous Postdoctoral experience. Future progression is based on annual performance review. If the candidate has not yet been awarded their PhD, the starting salary will be at £34,344 until the successful completion of their viva.
This role is eligible for ICR Sponsorship. Support will be provided for costs associated with the visa application.
Duration of Contract: Fixed Term until 31st July 2024 in the first instance with the possibility of renewal
Applicants should possess a PhD in a biological science such as molecular cell biology, biophysics or biochemistry. Experience with live cell microscopy, fluorescence correlation, spectroscopy or proteomics is desirable.
The ICR has a workforce agreement stating that Postdoctoral Training Fellows can only be employed for up to 7 years as PDTF at the ICR, providing total postdoctoral experience (including previous employment at this level elsewhere) does not exceed 10 years
The Division of Cancer Biology studies the complex interplay of genes, proteins and biological processes that drive the development and growth of cancers. Understanding the many different biological systems underlying cancer’s development is essential for understanding cancer and identifying new targets for treatment.
The research of the Cell Division Team focuses on understanding how cells divide, in particular how the machinery that controls cell division is regulated in space and time.
