An opportunity to join Dr Teresa Rayon’s lab as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist or Research Assistant at the Babraham Institute is available. The overarching goal of the lab is to study the molecular mechanisms that determine the pace of development and their impact on lifespan. The successful candidate will join a new and expanding group, and related publications include Rayon et al. 2021 Development, Rayon et al. 2021 Interface Focus, and Rayon et al. 2020 Science.
The candidate will play a central role in our programme of work studying the molecular and metabolic mechanisms that control developmental timing. In particular, the candidate will drive our efforts towards establishing a causal link of protein turnover on the rate of development. The post holder will employ quantitative dynamic proteomic approaches and will make use of pharmacological and genetic perturbations in stem cell-derived neural progenitors.
In addition to conducting the research outlined above, the post holder will help with training the lab’s graduate students and collaborate in other laboratory activities. They will benefit from the Institute’s world-leading expertise in signalling and epigenetics, from our excellent science facilities, and from existing external collaborations within the UK and internationally.
The ideal candidate has a PhD in cell biology, biochemistry or related disciplines, and has evidence of generating publication-quality data. It is expected that the post holder has good interpersonal skills and can communicate their work clearly in both formal and informal settings. Prior experience in molecular biology as well as handling of pluripotent stem cells will be beneficial, but on-the-job training will be provided. In addition, expertise in proteomics would be valuable.
This is a limited term appointment with funding for this post expected to be available for 2 years in the first instance.
Informal enquiries can be addressed to Teresa Rayon at Teresa.email@example.com
