POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN DISEASE GENE REGULATION
WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS (WTCHG), ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN AND OXFORD CENTRE FOR DIABETES ENDOCRINOLOGY & METABOLISM (OCDEM), CHURCHILL HOSPITAL, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7LE

Grade 7: Salary in range £30,434 - £37,394 per annum

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Disease Gene Regulation to join the genetics of Type 2 Diabetes group, led by Professors McCarthy and Gloyn. The group is an internationally renowned multidisciplinary laboratory focused in the field of diabetes genetics. 

You will play a key role in trying to understand the mechanisms by which non-coding changes in genomic sequences affect the regulation of gene expression and predispose to Type 2 Diabetes and glycaemic traits. You will have responsibility for overseeing the implementation and analysis of the data generated in the Type 2 Diabetes component of the study.

You will have a PhD in biochemistry, molecular biology or closely related field, together with extensive demonstrable experience in at least one of the following areas; 1) Molecular and cellular biology (e.g. reporter assays, conformational capture, knockdown and over-expression studies using viral delivery), 2) Genome editing using zinc fingers, Talens or CRISPR-Cas 9, 3) Generation of data using next-generation sequencing based functional assays (e.g. DHS, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq), 4) Analysis of next-generation sequencing data.

This position is funded by a Wellcome Trust Strategic Award for a fixed-term of 3 years, and is one of three positions being advertised in parallel under this award for the following departments: MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics and the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences.
