Postdoctoral Researcher - Role of S1P signalling in deafness
We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research for an MRC-funded project in the laboratory of Professor Karen Steel at the Wolfson Centre for Age Related Diseases, Guy’s Campus, Kings College London.
The project involves analysis of mice with mutations affecting sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) signalling including conditional knockout lines, to investigate the mechanism underlying hearing loss in these mutants and to ask if it can be halted or reversed as a proof-of-concept.
Experience in mouse genetics or cochlear physiology or structural/ultrastructural analysis of biological tissues would be an advantage. Good organizational skills will be needed for tracking mouse colonies with multiple mutant alleles.
This postdoctoral position is at Grade 6, starting salary from £32,958 to £37,075 pa plus £2,623 pa London Allowance, and is fixed term up to 3rd July 2019.
The deadline for applications is 13th August 2017 and interviews will be held during September 2017. The selection process will include a presentation and questions with an interview panel and a visit to the laboratories. For an informal discussion to find out more about the role please contact Professor Karen Steel, Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org.
