Research Associate : Ubiquitination in Mitosis [Fixed Term]
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work in the laboratory of Dr Catherine Lindon on an MRC funded project studying ubiquitination events that occur in mitosis. The project will involve large-scale preparation of cells and biochemical purification of ubiquitinated material for proteomic profiling, alongside time-resolved single cell assays to probe cell fates associated with specific ubiquitination events.
The work will suit a researcher with a PhD in molecular cell biology and some research background in time-lapse imaging or in the study of ubiquitin pathways. You should also have experience in culture and preparation of cells for biochemical or imaging assays, mass spectrometry to identify proteins and their modifications, quantitative time-lapse imaging of mammalian cells and knowledge of literature in ubiquitin and cell division fields.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 1 year in the first instance.
Salary : £28,695-£37,394
Closing date : 19 December 2014
