In addition, the postholder will adapt existing and develop new scientific techniques and experimental protocols, present papers and posters, communicate with the PI to keep them up-to-date with progress and difficulties in the research project, contribute to laboratory meetings and discussion of the aims and objectives of the group&#8217;s work, and to attend appropriate scientific seminars and meetings and to remain up-to-date with developments in the relevant fields.</p><br><p>You should hold a PhD in a related area and have relevant laboratory experience, in particular knowledge about the use of mouse models with particular emphasis on mouse brain and immune system related analysis. In addition, you will need substantial experience in anatomical techniques, as well as imaging and biochemical analysis, and will need to demonstrate the ability to work as a team member but also independently when required; to present your results clearly and contribute to meetings; and have good organisation skills to plan benchwork and meet deadlines.</p><br><p>The post is available for 12 months, funded by the Wellcome Trust, in collaboration with the University of Cambridge.</p><br><p>The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 27 March 2017.</p> </div>
