Project 1

Postdoctoral position to use in vivo model genetics to study O-GlcNAc signalling pathways linked to development and neurodegeneration


You will use recently generated novel in vivo model lines to study the role of the O-GlcNAc modification in a number of models of neurodegenerative/metabolic disease.

This position is available for 18 months in the first instance. Starting date is flexible but before January 2017.

Candidate requirements:

Essential:
- A background in working with in vivo models of neurodegeneration/metabolic disease and possessing a personal Home Office license.
- PhD with an outstanding track record and at least one first authored publication in an internationally recognised peer-reviewed journal.
- Capable of working in a team, but able to generate ideas, plan and work independently.
- A desire to interact with, and learn from, scientists beyond your own discipline/culture.
- Excellent communication skills and proficiency in English, in particular in writing scientific publications.

Desirable:
- A background in biochemistry, molecular biology, signal transduction and or pharmacology would be preferable.
- Familiarity with protein glycosylation and related developmental disorders.
