UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD                                                                                                         GROUP LEADER                                                                                                                       WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN                                                                                                                    Grade 9: £44,620 - £51,702 with a discretionary range to £56,482 p.a.

The Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, an interdisciplinary centre of 470 scientists, is an internationally-leading research institute for the study of the genetics of human diseases, structural biology and statistical genetics.

Applications are invited from outstanding early-career scientists, with a specific interest in the genetics of human disease, who wish to establish themselves as an internationally-competitive, independent group leader. Applicants will have an advantage if their disease interest overlaps with one of the senior disease-specific research groups already based in the centre, but the possibility of starting group in a new research area is open for the right candidate. 

Applicants with an interest in one of the following areas may also be considered: epigenetics, gene regulation, non-coding RNA, iPS cells, or meiotic recombination.

You will have a PhD in a relevant field and either an established, strong publication record or, for strong early career researchers, clear evidence that this level of attainment will be reached soon so that, once established, you will be a very strong candidate for one of the UK’s established, externally-funded fellowship schemes. 

A generous start-up package will fund personal salary, research staff and consumables. There is flexibility over starting dates, but successful applicants are anticipated to take up post by early autumn 2015.

The position is fixed-term for five years in the first instance and funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Applications will also be considered for appointment at the appropriate salary range of Grade 8: £38,511 - £45,954 p.a., with a suitable adjustment to duties and responsibilities.

UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD                                                                                                    POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN GENOME ENGINEERING                                     WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN                                                                                                                   Grade 7: £30,434 - £37,394 p.a. (with a discretionary range to £40,847 p.a.)

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Genome Engineering to assist in the establishment of a new core cell culture facility within Dr. Ben Davies’ group at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.

We seek an individual with expertise in the culture of human iPS or human ES cells who will supervise the day-to-day running of the facility, will provide training and assistance for centre researchers working within the facility, will design and conduct service projects for the genetic manipulation of iPS cells and will work together with the transgenic core to explore technological improvements in the use of site specific nuclease technology (TALENs and CRISPR). We anticipate the role to be exceptionally diverse and would suit an individual with proven expertise in human stem cell culture who is enthusiastic and motivated to move to a service oriented role within a core facility.

You will have a PhD in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics or a related discipline (or expectation that the thesis will be submitted before December 2014). You will also have experience in the culture of human iPS or human ES cells and experience in the genetic manipulation (stable / transient transfection) of cells with a strong motivation to work in problems related to human and mammalian genetics.

You will have the ability to deliver results to the required standard and schedule. You will be able to demonstrate your ability to work independently as well as in a team and to manage the day-to-day running of a research project.

The position is funded by the Wellcome Trust for 2 years in the first instance.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
