The School of Life and Health Sciences at Aston University is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position as Biochemist/Cell Biologist. The position is sponsored by the MRC through their Biomedical Catalyst DPFS. The position is available initially for a term of nine months with a possible extension to 12 months subject to the satisfactory progress of the project as determined by the MRC.
About the position:
- The appointed Biochemist/Cell biologist will work in a team of Biochemists and Medicinal Chemists with the objective of developing novel small molecule inhibitors which can eventually be used as drugs for the treatment of organ fibrosis such as that found in diabetic cardiomyopathy.
- As a Biochemist/Cell biologist your duties will involve the biochemical and biological testing of the new potential drugs in both in vitro and cell and tissue models and aiding our collaborators at Leeds University in the analysis of tissue from in vivo models.
- Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent in Biochemistry and/or Cell biology and sufficient post-doctoral experience of working in a biochemistry/cell biology area.
- Experience in enzyme analysis, tissue culture, statistical analysis, project reporting and ideally some experience in the histological and/or immunochemical analysis of tissues would be an advantage but training is available if needed.
