Interesting 6-year post-doctoral position at the University of Reading focusing on extracellular vesicles in cardiovascular disease:

Salary : £29,799 to £38,833 per annum

Applications are invited for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to manage and develop projects investigating the roles of circulating extracellular vesicles in cardiovascular biology and the impact of diet on the generation and function of extracellular vesicles. Extracellular vesicles are shed from a variety of cell types and are thought to reflect vascular damage and a pro-coagulatory environment. We are interested in characterising them using flow cytometry and nanoparticle tracking analysis, and how they change in individuals with cardiovascular disease and in response to different dietary environments. The 6-year post will provide an opportunity for the post-holder to shape research ideas, apply for research funding and gain experience which would help them to establish themselves as independent researchers. They will have the opportunity to collaborate with researchers both within the University of Reading and other institutes. There will be significant opportunity for personal development, including teaching experience if desired.

You will have:

A PhD in a Life Science subject
Research background in Cardiovascular Biology
Experience with flow cytometry
Excellent written and verbal communication skills

Closing Date : 22/08/2018


Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Cardiovascular Medicine : RDM Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Oxford, Oxford

Salary: Grade 7: £31,604 p.a.

The Department is pleased to offer an exceptional opportunity for a talented and ambitious postdoctoral scientist to work in a team investigating regenerative medicine strategies after myocardial infarction. You will work under the guidance of Professor Robin Choudhury and Professor Paul Riley to make fundamental discoveries that provide new insights into cardiovascular stem cell function and potency. The current proposal targets the role of the innate immune response using state of the art cellular characterisation and systematic intervention.

You will be expected to manage your own academic research and administrative activities which involves project management and the ability to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. As well as this you will test hypotheses and analyse scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate. You will hold a PhD/DPhil or equivalent qualification in a relevant discipline as well as a 1st class or upper second class degree. Proven experience with molecular techniques relevant to this project is required and previous experience in histology or Immunohistochemistry is desirable.

This full-time appointment is on a fixed-term contract for 3 years and is funded by the BHF centre of Regenerative Medicine. You will be based on the level 6 West Wing in the John Radcliffe hospital and the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG). Applications for this vacancy are to be made online; you will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 5 April 2018 can be considered. Interviews are scheduled to place mid-April.
