Job Opportunities

Research Associate in Quantitative Live Cell Imaging of Cell Decisions in Development and Reprogramming, - Ref:1636558 at University College London (UCL), London, UK


UCL Department / Division MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology
Grade 7
Hours Full Time
Salary (inclusive of London allowance) £34,056 - £41,163 per annum

Duties and Responsibilities

A Wellcome Trust funded Research Associate position is available in the Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology at University College London University College London. The laboratory uses innovative imaging technologies to observe the transcription firing of single genes in living cells (eLife 5:13051, Curr.Biol. 16: 1018-25, PNAS 109:7350). Their goals are to understand how transcription is regulated and integrated into robust cellular decisions in development and reprogramming/dedifferentiation.

The project provides an excellent opportunity to start out and develop a career niche in gene regulation and cellular decision-making. The Chubb laboratory is embedded in a world-class working environment offering remarkable opportunities for stimulating scientific exchange and professional development.

The project will be carried out in the laboratory of Dr Jonathan Chubb and the post is funded for three years in the first instance.

Key Requirements

Candidates are expected to be scientists who have a PhD degree (or are about to be awarded one) and a track record of research in a relevant area of the life and/or physical sciences. Of particular interest are applicants with a background in imaging and quantitative image analysis. We would also be pleased to consider physicists and computer scientists with a strong pedigree in image analysis and modeling, and would train the relevant biology.

Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent on having been awarded a PhD. If this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £29,809 - £31,432 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.

Further Details

For enquiries and further information about the post contact Dr Jonathan Chubb and enquiries about the application process should be directed to Ione Karney.
