Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 30 November 2018 in the first instance.

Dr Mark Holmes and Dr Andrew Grant are seeking to appoint a postdoctoral Research Associate and a Research Assistant to join a team of scientists to work on an MRC antimicrobial resistance Theme 1 project using chromosome conformation capture metagenomics (3C and HiC) to investigate the transfer of antimicrobial resistance genes within and between species of bacteria in complex microbiomes. The project is a collaboration which includes the Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge, The University of Edinburgh and the Roslin Institute.

We are looking for ambitious and hardworking individuals with skills and experience in the relevant fields of molecular microbiology, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics and metagenomics. The successful candidates would have a strong match in at least one area but with the willingness to extend their expertise and experience. The candidates must value teamwork, collaboration and possess good organisational and communication skills.

Research Associate

The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Molecular Microbiology or a relevant discipline.

Research Assistant

Research Associate (Fixed Term)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on Nov 03, 2016.

University of Cambridge Department of Veterinary Medicine West Cambridge Site

Limit of Tenure: Funds for this post are available until the 31st December 2020.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work with Professor Clare Bryant on her Wellcome Trust Investigator award to determine the molecular mechanisms involved in inflammasome formation in infectious and inflammatory diseases. The position is available from 1st January 2017 or as soon as possible after that date.

This project utilises novel multidisciplinary approaches, in collaboration with Pietro Cicuta (Physics), David Klenerman (Chemistry) and Nick Gay (Biochemistry).

This challenging and exciting role will involve studying what factors are important for inflammasome formation and how the process is regulated. The project will require making bacterial mutants, the use of CRISPR/Cas9 techniques to mutate and tag proteins in eukaryotic cells, cell biology approaches (using primarily macrophages) and novel microscopy approaches (including single cell signalling, super resolution microscopy and single molecule fluorescence approaches). The role will involve working closely with collaborators within Physics, Chemistry and Medicine, but will primarily be based in the Department of Veterinary Medicine.

The candidate will ideally be experienced in a wide range of infection and molecular techniques, have broad multidisciplinary skills and will need to be highly driven and adaptable to new scientific challenges. The post holder will be part of a team of 3 postdoctoral researchers working on this project, each being responsible for driving the project forward and for liaising with other members of the research team. He/she should also be able to work independently, accurately judge priorities, and have excellent organisational, communication and leadership skills. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will be expected to share progress and findings with the project team and in return, will benefit from their support and expert advice.

Essential Skills

. PhD in a relevant subject area (e.g. molecular bacteriology, eukaryotic genetics, molecular biology).

. Highly self-motivated with critical thinking skills.

. Ability to communicate ideas and results effectively.

. Ability to work independently and organise own workload.

. The ability to effectively communicate with colleagues and collaborators and occasionally present orally to large groups.

. Proven independent working style, problem solving, data analysis and generation of novel ideas.
