Fixed Term for 2 years, Full Time


This British Heart Foundation funded position with Professor Anthony Albert focuses on novel vasoactive properties of myristoylated alanine-rich C-kinase substrate (MARCKS), in which MARCKS modulates vascular contractility by mediating voltage-gated Ca2+ channel activity by phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2).

The successful applicant will have experience in at least one of the following techniques: cell culture, molecular manipulation (e.g. over-expression, siRNA), western blotting, immunocytochemistry, proximity ligation assay, wire myography, and whole-cell patch clamp recording. A background in ion channels is not necessarily essential, what is more important is evidence of an interest and enthusiasm for understanding cell biology mechanisms and function.

The post will require a person to play an active role in experimental planning, data analysis, manuscript preparation, and data presentation at national and international conferences. In addition, the applicant will also contribute to the development of research ideas and collaborations. They will be been given the opportunity to gain supervisory experience by being involved in the day to day supervision of BSc and PhD students within the group.
