Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Oxford Branch, University of Oxford

Oxford, South East England, United Kingdom

Salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

We are currently recruiting for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist with a background in molecular/cell biology. Our research is focused on understanding how the ubiquitin system controls innate immune processes that protect against infectious agents but, when inappropriately activated, also contribute to chronic inflammation and cancer. Our long-term goal is to identify molecular processes that can be targeted pharmacologically to treat cancer and other inflammation-driven pathologies.

This is a full-time, fixed-term position for 2 years in the first instance.

You should have previous laboratory experience relevant to the project. Good attention to detail and an ability to work both independently and as part of a team is essential. You will use of a wide range of basic and advanced biochemical, molecular and cell biology techniques, including but not limited to mammalian cell culture, protein-complex purification, cloning, genome editing, gene expression profiling, and mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Previous and relevant experience with signal transduction is required. Previous experience with ubiquitin biology as well as mass spectrometry-based proteomics is highly desirable

Professor Gyrd-Hansen’s group at Ludwig Cancer Research is seeking an exceptional and motivated postdoctoral scientist with experience in biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology to undertake a project that focusses on the role of the ubiquitin machinery in innate immune signalling.
