VACANCY: Research associate x 2 (MED01698)

Reference: MED01698
Date posted: 27 January 2020
Closing date: 05 March 2020

Two research associate positions are available to study new mechanisms in DNA replication and the epigenetic basis of chromatin structure.

Position 1:

The successful applicant should have expertise in protein biochemistry and structural biology and will employ in vitro reconstitution and cryo-electron microscopy to investigate either:

  1. Novel DNA replication mechanisms, or
  2. how epigenetics affect chromatin structure.

Position 2:

The successful applicant should have expertise in genomics and proteomics and will employ novel sequencing-based approaches together with proteomics to investigate either:

  1. Novel mechanisms in the initiation of DNA replication and DNA repair, or
  2. nucleosome/chromatin organisation and structure at a genome-wide level in order to understand gene regulation in health and disease.
