Jobs in the Department

Research Associate

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on Feb 25, 2019.

We are looking to recruit a motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on the biochemical characterisation of a highly conserved non-canonical KRAB Zinc Finger Protein (KZFP) regulating mammalian epigenetic states within the research group of Anne Ferguson-Smith in the Department of Genetics.

The project involves the identification of protein partners and the role of protein subdomains in the targeted regulation of chromatin states by KZFPs. Mouse mutants and mutant ES cell models have been generated to underpin this project which will integrate in vivo functional analyses with proteomics and protein biochemistry.

Candidates should hold a PhD in biochemistry or molecular biology and should have experience in proteomics and bioinformatics, as well as mammalian cell culture.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.

Research Associate - Centrioles & Centrosomes (Fixed Term)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on Mar 01, 2019.

A postdoctoral research position is available for 12 months to work with Professor David Glover in the Department of Genetics, funded by CRUK to study the physical organisation of centrioles and centrosomes.

The applicant should hold a PhD in one of the biological sciences, and be familiar with Drosophila as an experimental system for studying cell and developmental biology. They should have experience of recombinant DNA techniques and molecular cell biology; have specific experience with sub-cellular fractionation procedures, (especially in the use of gradient centrifugation techniques to purify centrosomes from Drosophila embryos); in vitro systems to study the nucleation of microtubules; and with approaches to study the roles of protein kinases and phosphatases in such systems.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 12 months in the first instance.
