Post-doctoral Research Position, MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology


We are pleased to announce a call for applications for a BBSRC funded post-doctoral researcher position in the lab of Dr. Jonathan Chubb in the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (Jonathan Chubb Research Group). The lab has developed powerful technologies to image pulses of gene expression in living cells (Curr Biol 24:205-11, PNAS 109:7350-5, Curr Biol 16:1018-25). We use a combination of live cell imaging, modeling and molecular genetics to understand the mechanistic basis of gene expression pulses, how they are responsive to signals, developmental and chromatin context and the implications of pulsatile gene expression on the generation of diversity between cells in developmental and clinical contexts.

Candidates are expected to be exceptional, highly motivated scientists who have a strong track record of research in a relevant area of the life and/or physical sciences. A strong background in molecular and cell biology is necessary. We would also favour applicants with considerable experience with live cell imaging and the computational analysis of large imaging and sequence databases.

Work will be carried out both at the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology MRC. The LMCB is in the main UCL campus, in the heart of central London.

The position is available to start from 1st August 2014 for 2 years, initially. Some flexibility with start date is possible. The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7, with a starting salary of £32,000 inclusive per annum (Band 7).

A job description, person specification and the online application form are available at UCL jobs. This site offers details of the application process and who to contact if you have any queries. Informal inquiries should be directed to Dr Jonathan Chubb email.

Closing date: 5pm 15th June 2014
