Two Postdoctoral Scientist Positions

Alderley Park

Location: Cheshire, UK

Full time: Yes, Fixed-term, 1 year

 

We are advertising two Postdoctoral Scientist positions at Medicines Discovery Catapult

We have recently established our Advanced Light Microscopy facility which includes Super Resolution and Confocal/Multiphoton instruments and we are looking for motivated scientists to explore and apply imaging methods to answer cutting-edge medicines discovery questions. This is a chance for someone to join us at an exciting time when new application for medicines discovery are being developed and new research collaborative projects are being created around applying Single Molecule Localized Microscopy and Advanced light microscopy in the drug discovery field.

 

Two opportunities:

Postdoctoral Scientist – Advanced Microscopy

The role of Postdoctoral Scientist – Advanced Microscopy would suit a highly motivated self-starter who is passionate about the application of advanced light microscopy methods to medicines discovery. The successful candidate will bring a depth of expertise in advanced light microscopy and image analysis and will provide scientific input in this discipline to deliver collaborative projects and build new capabilities.

Through the application of a variety of advanced light microscopy methods, the candidate will characterise complex cell models and prosecute target validation and efficacy studies in support of externally partnered drug discovery projects. The individual will be an integral part of the microscopy team and will work closely with colleagues in interdisciplinary projects. The role will also involve collaboration with external partners, including medicine discovery companies, technology providers and academic institutes.

Postdoctoral Scientist – Single Molecule Localization Microscopy

We are looking for a post-doctoral scientist with significant experience in Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) to apply their expertise to new and cutting-edge questions in the drug discovery field, including cellular mechanism of action studies and biomarker analysis.

The successful individual will establish novel imaging methods & workflows utilizing the advanced imaging platform available at MDC and will apply them in collaborative projects with external partners, focussed on the discovery and development of small molecules and novel therapeutics. The project is a great opportunity to further develop SMLM applications and accelerate medicines discovery. The prospect to join a world class laboratory team in this high-profile national organisation should provide a fantastic platform for career development.

Research Fellow

The University of Western Australia

Location: Perth, Australia

Full time: Yes, Fixed-term, 4 years

 

Two opportunities:

Research Fellow (CryoTEM)

The Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA) comprises approximately 30 academic, research, technical and administrative staff supporting a diverse range of instrument platforms from electron and optical microscopy to ion probes and MRI. The CMCA’s mission is to enable research excellence by providing access to world-class scientific infrastructure and expertise in characterisation to researchers and industry.

Postdoctoral Training Fellow

The Francis Crick Institute

Location: London

Full time: Yes, Fixed-term, 4 years

Salary: Competitive with benefits, subject to skills and experience

Deadline: 28-Sep-2020

 

An exciting opportunity is now open for an aspiring cross-disciplinary computational modeller/microscopy imaging postdoctoral researcher to join our lab. If you have so far focussed primarily in one side e.g. imaging, with only a smaller experience in coding, or vice versa, but have a passion to develop both skills – please don’t hesitate to apply!

Our lab has a core strength in developing predictive cell-based, spatiotemporal simulations closely tied to, and validated by, experiments to understand how cell shape, dynamics and behaviour drive blood vessel growth. This project aims to understand the maladapted cell behaviour driving abnormal vascular tuft formation in blindness causing retinopathies. We recently discovered using lightsheet imaging (Prahst et. al. eLife 2020) that tufts have a 3D knotted morphology, which we now want to understand fully to inspire new therapeutics.

Training and access to the tools and equipment needed for the project will be provided, including the wide array of cutting-edge 3D-4D microscopes and image analysis software housed at the Francis Crick Institute and modelling code bases and practices in our lab. The role will not involve mouse work directly as retinas are provide by our collaborators.

We are particularly interested in creative applicants who will want to bring their own flair and ideas to the project and are keen to hear from applicants underrepresented in STEM.

The successful candidate will report directly to Dr. Bentley, Head of the Cellular Adaptive Behaviour Laboratory based at the Francis Crick Institute.
