Post-doctoral Research Asscoiate
Sheffield University, United Kingdom
Salary: £22579- £25452
Post doctoral research associate is required to work with Dr P.E. Sudbery on a Wellcome Trust-funded project to investigate hypha formation in the human fungal pathogen, Candida albicans. The appointee will use molecular genetics, biochemistry and immunocytochemistry to investigate the molecular mechanisms that remodel the cell cycle and cause hyperpolarised cell growth during the switch from the yeast to the hyphal growth forms. Applicants should have a Ph.D. and preferably post-doctoral experience in a relevant field. A background in yeast molecular biology would be an advantage, but is not essential.
The appointee will join the group of Dr Peter Sudbery and work alongside a Ph.D student on the project. Other members of the group will be investigating aspects of the S.cerevisiae cell cycle and morphogenesis. Dr Sudbery's group shares recently refurbished laboratories and excellent facilities with two other yeast groups: Dr Clive Price's group, working on checkpoints and cytokinesis, and Dr Alistair Goldman's group working on chromosome pairing and recombination. The appointee will thus work in a stimulating environment of some 20 yeast molecular biologists and have access to a wide range of expertise and experience. The laboratories are part of the large and extremely successful Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology in Sheffield University, UK.
The post is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is for 3 years from the commencement of employment, and is available immediately. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D and normally research experience at post-doctoral level. However, candidates of proven quality without post-doctoral experience will also be favourably considered. The candidate should have relevant experience in appropriate techniques in cell or molecular biology. Experience in yeast research is an advantage but not essential.
