UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
SENIOR POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN GENETICS
WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BNN                                                                                                                
Grade 8: Salary in the scale £38,896 to £43,758 p.a. pro rata

Applications are invited for a Senior Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Genetics to join Professor Adrian Hill’s group at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.

This work aims to understand how variation in human genetic architecture shapes the responses to vaccines and infectious agents across populations in order to facilitate discoveries that can be translated into effective preventative strategies such as improved vaccination.

You will be motivated scientist who strives to produce work of the highest quality and who is seeking to ultimately help shape the research group’s plans for future research. The work involves using bioinformatic tools including genome-wide association analyses in structured populations to identify genetic signals that impact on the host immune system and the ability to respond to infectious agents.

You will have a PhD/DPhil with post-qualification research experience with strong publication record and familiarity with the existing literature and research in immunogenetics, immunology and infectious disease and significant experience in human bioinformatics. You will have the ability to independently plan and manage a research organise work-time efficiently and to deliver high quality results to a required standard schedule. Previous laboratory experience, computer skills, good communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team are essential.

This position is fixed-term until 30 June 2017 and funded by European Research Council.

UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD 
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN STRUBI
WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, DIVISION OF STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BNN   

Grade 7: £30,738 - £37,768 p.a. (with a discretionary range to £41,255 p.a.)

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in STRUBI in the Division of Structural Biology based at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.

You will be based in the research group of Dr. Radu Aricescu which is complexes assembled around, and modulating the function of, ionotropic receptors for glutamate and gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA), the two neurotransmitters that dominate signalling in the vertebrate central nervous system, as well as cell surface receptor enzymes (protein tyrosine phosphatases and kinases). We are particularly interested in recruiting structural biologists with substantial experience in cell surface receptor research or researchers with outstanding backgrounds in receptor biology who have a strong commitment to gaining expertise in structural biology.

You will have a PhD in structural biology, biochemistry, neuroscience or a related field, as well a research experience in either production of eukaryotic membrane proteins for structure/function studies or crystallization and X-ray crystallography, or single-particle cryo-electron microscopy, analysis of membrane proteins. You will have extensive experience with multiple biophysical and cell-based assays, to validate structural information and an excellent publication record. YOU will have the ability to manage the day-to-day running of a research project, and assisting the work of junior researchers. You will be able to work as part of a team and also independently and deliver results to required standard and schedule, be able to organize and prioritize own work with minimal supervision and have excellent communication skills, both written and oral.

The post is fixed-term for 22 months in the first instance and funded by the Medical Research Council.
