Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, Roosevelt Drive, Headington, Oxford
Grade 7: £31,076 – £38,183 with a discretionary range to £41,709 p.a.
Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Researcher in Single-Cell Transcriptomics as part of a Wellcome Trust and Royal Society-funded research programme led by Dr Calli Dendrou at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.
You will be involved in a unique research programme investigating molecular circuits implicated across multiple autoimmune diseases, and in assessing how these circuits may be perturbed by both genetic and environmental factors. You will perform single-cell RNA-seq experiments using primary human immune cells but may also have the opportunity to use other genomics methods and/or carry out protein level analyses as well, including mass cytometry.
You will have a PhD in molecular immunology, molecular biology, biotechnology or related discipline with prior wet lab experience performing single-cell RNA-seq (e.g. RNA-seq library preparation and next generation sequencing). You will have prior experience analysing single-cell RNA-seq data; experience in basic molecular biology and/or cell culture techniques; research experience investigating immunological or genetic pathophysiological mechanisms underlying immune-mediated diseases and experience working with human samples. You will also have excellent communication skills as demonstrated by both oral presentation skills and a strong publication record (one or more first author publications in peer-reviewed journals)
The position is fixed-term for 3 years and funded by Sir Henry Dale Fellowship.
Please quote ref. 128115 on all correspondence. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
