Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience

Applications for this vacancy closed on 21 November 2016 at 12:00PM
Are you a postdoctoral scientist with knowledge about the use of mouse models;
the ability to perform and adapt diverse behavioural tasks to mouse
behavioural phenotyping; and substantial knowledge in neural anatomical
techniques, as well as imaging and biochemical analysis?



The group of Dr Liliana Minichiello in the Department of Pharmacology at
Oxford is seeking an innovative and collaborative cellular and molecular
neuroscientist to join an exciting project funded by the BBSRC. The project is
an investigation of how nerve cells function at the cellular and molecular
level, and how they work together in complex neural networks to facilitate
specific behavioural function. Specifically, the group are now seeking to
address the mechanisms underlying TrkB signalling contribution to normal and
altered locomotor activity control during aging in the presence or absence of
TrkB signalling, via a combination of state of the art technologies including
spatially restricted genetic manipulation, RNA-sequencing, and intracellular
signalling and protein chemistry integrated with physiological readouts such
as behaviour, histology and imaging.



In addition to the skills and experience highlighted above, you should have a
PhD in a relevant area and also relevant laboratory experience. In addition,
you should have the ability to work well within a collaborative team but also
to work independently when required. The ideal candidate will have the ability
to present results clearly and effectively with colleagues and to an external
audience as well as excellent attention to detail. Previous experience of
supervising junior lab members and collaborating in the development of
research articles for publication would also be an advantage.



Note: an appointment at Grade 6 (£27,326 - £32,600 p.a.) may also be
considered for a less experienced candidate with suitable adjustment of the
responsibilities.



The post is fixed-term for 9 months in the first instance, funded by the
BBSRC.



The closing date for application is 12.00 noon on Monday 21 November 2016.
