Graduate Research Assistantship: Signalling Pathways in Cardiogenesis, Oxford University, UK

We are looking for a highly motivated graduate research assistant with a BSc and/or MSc in a relevant discipline, an interest in cell signalling, ideally with experience in cell culture, molecular cloning, transfections, cell-based luciferase assays, siRNA techniques (including high-throughput screening), and microscopy. The candidate will work together with a postdoctoral fellow on cell signalling pathways (e.g. BMP, WNT, HH, NOTCH, FGF) that are important in heart formation using cell-based assays.

The post is available from 1 June 2011 for up to five years, and is funded by a British Heart Foundation Programme Grant Award to Professor Shoumo Bhattacharya. Our laboratory is located at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, which provides an outstanding working environment, with excellent core facilities and opportunities for interactions.
