Associate Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at University of Oxford

Closing date: 26 Feb 2021
Ref: 147958

The Department of Biochemistry and St Anne’s College are seeking to recruit an Associate Professor with expertise in microbial metabolism and/or biochemistry. The role of the Associate Professor is to engage in both research and undergraduate teaching on these topics on our 4-year degree course for Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry. The appointee will have high quality laboratory space in the New Biochemistry Building, within the Microbiology and Systems Biology Theme. This vibrant Theme researches microbial cell envelope structure and biogenesis, antibiotic resistance, protein import and secretion, cellular homeostasis control, cell population dynamics and competition strategies within microbiomes. All groups share state-of-the art research facilities for structural, cellular and molecular biology and have access to a range of Departmental and University PhD training programmes.

Research Associate in Developmental Neurobiology at King's College London

Fixed Term Contract: up to 5 years
Closing date: 28 Fev 2021
Ref: 013764

The Houart lab is seeking to appoint three postdoctoral research associates (PDRA) to join a Wellcome Trust-funded research programme aiming to understand the role of axonal splicing factors and intron retaining transcripts in neuronal maturation, establishment and maintenance of neuronal connectivity. Our nervous system crucially relies on local fast decisions taken at synapses, long distance from the neuronal cell body. The mechanisms by which these decisions are spatio-temporally controlled remain obscure. Axonal splicing factors and intron-retaining mRNAs have newly been identified as key players in the process. We seek to understand the fundamental molecular and cellular roles they play locally in the dynamic control of neuronal connectivity, using animal models (zebrafish) and cell culture approaches.

The research programme will require expertise in genetics, transcriptomics, proteomics, high-resolution (live and fixed) molecular imaging, computational analytical methods. We wish to appoint a PDRA with expertise in cutting-edge imaging technology, a PDRA with strong zebrafish neurobiology background and a PDRA with very strong protein/RNA biology experience.
