Job description

Job summary

We are recruiting for a Research Associate in the Section of Structural Biology at South Kensington in the research group of Professor Dale Wigley (https://www.structurebiomed.org/dale-wigley). You will join a multi-disciplinary team of international researchers investigating the structures and mechanisms of chromatin modifying complexes in human DNA damage repair and cancer. We combine structural biology techniques with biochemistry to understand molecular mechanisms for DNA repair that prevent cancer in humans. The successful candidates will have proven expertise in either or both of these areas.

Duties and responsibilities

Key duties will include maintaining an up-to-date, detailed knowledge of relevant and recent research literature, as well as identify and develop suitable techniques, and apparatus, for the collection and analysis of data. You will prepare and present findings to colleagues at seminars and lab meetings and submit publications to refereed journals.

Essential requirements

You must hold a PhD, or equivalent, in biochemistry, enzymology or structural biology and have a demonstrated track record in conducting high quality original research. Knowledge at postgraduate level in structural biology (crystallography or electron microscopy) and/or biochemistry is essential and experience in expression/purification of multi-protein complexes in insect or human cells is desirable.

Further information

This role is offered on a full time and fixed term basis until 16th December 2023.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477 - £38,566 per annum.
