An exciting opportunity to be part of a pioneering biomedical research institute, dedicated to innovation and science. A postdoctoral research post in the laboratory of Sharon Tooze’s Molecular Cell Biology of Autophagy laboratory is now available. We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to apply cell biological, biochemical and structural tools and approaches to investigate autophagy. The successful applicant will have hands-on experience in cell biology and biochemistry, and knowledge of microscopy. A PhD in a relevant area (or be in the final stages of completion) is required.
The Molecular Cell Biology of Autophagy group usually comprises 3-4 post-doctoral research fellows, and 2 graduate students, supported by 2 senior research assistants.
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
