Do you have a passion for conducting biomedical research and delivering cutting edge outputs where the generation and analysis of data play a key role?
You will contribute to a range of projects in fundamental and translational biomedical research intended to benefit human health and drive forward research. You will provide support to colleagues in both MRC Centres, working on experimental design, and providing specialist analyses for a variety of molecular, cellular and genomic biomedical questions. You will work closely on other faculites as well as with University experts in knowledge transfer for research and innovation.
You will have a PhD or equivalent in a relevant biomedical discipline and experience in the application of molecular genetic, and sophisticated cell and molecular biological techniques, to address questions of medical importance.
