Research Associate in the Department of Biomedical Science
University of Sheffield, Department of Biomedical Science
United Kingdom

A Research Associate position in regenerative biology is available in the Roehl Laboratory starting this autumn. The project focuses on zebrafish tail regeneration and specifically on how regeneration is initiated after wound closure. This project builds upon our recent Nature Comms paper that identified a central role for Hedgehog signalling the initiation of regeneration. Some of the advanced technologies that will be used in this project are: light sheet microscopy and cre/lox transgenics to track regenerative cell migration; RNAseq analysis to identify early regenerative genes; CRISPR/Cas9 to analyse the role of candidate genes.

Applicants must have a good honours degree (or equivalent experience) and hold a PhD (or be close to completion) in a relevant discipline, or have equivalent experience along with experience in confocal and widefield imaging and molecular biology techniques. Previous experience in data analysis and the application of statistics using GraphPad Prism (or similar software) is also essential.

The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
