PREVIOUS APPLICANTS NEED NOT APPLY
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the team led by Dr Beth Psaila in the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine.
This is an exciting opportunity to work on an innovative project using state-of-the-art approaches to understand stem cell heterogeneity and the development/function of megakaryocytes in a group of blood cancers called myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). The work will involve conventional cellular and molecular biology techniques as well as more complex, state-of-the-art protocols for single-cell multi-omic analyses, highly-multiplexed proteomics and in vitro/vivo models.
You will hold a PhD (or near to completion: thesis submitted) together with relevant experience in haematology, megakaryocyte/platelet biology or a relevant field. Experience in one or more of the core techniques for the project (molecular biology, bioinformatics, imaging, mouse models of MPN; single cell techniques or data analysis) is essential, along with experience of independently managing an academic research project and the ability to work as part of a team.
The post is available full time, fixed-term until 31 July 2024, funded by Cancer Research UK (CRUK).
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
The closing date for this position is noon on Friday 8 October 2021.
