Postdoctoral Research Associate – Salary: £32,236.00 – £39,609.00 (Grade 7) – University of Cambridge
Limit of Tenure: From 1st January 2019 (or as soon as possible thereafter) for 24 months
Applications are invited for this postdoctoral position, as part of a project funded by the Petplan Charitable Trust, which will aim to identify novel biomarkers of bladder cancer (urothelial carcinoma) in dogs. Early diagnosis of bladder cancer in dogs is currently hampered by the late onset of symptoms and a lack of reliable non-invasive
diagnostic tests, therefore this project will investigate if miRNAs within urinary extracellular vesicles (EVs) can be used as non-invasive biomarkers for urothelial carcinoma in dogs.
The applicant will work alongside Dr Tim Williams and Professor Fiona Karet, both of which have a proven track record in EV research, and Dr Andrew Grant and Dr Lajos Kalmar, who have extensive experience in transcriptome analysis, including bioinformatics. The main focus of the research led by Dr Williams and Professor Karet, is to study the biology of EVs and investigate their utility as a source of biomarkers of renal and urinary tract diseases in humans and mammals.
Applicants should have a PhD, in Molecular Biology or a related discipline, and ideally have either experience in quantitative molecular biology and/or extracellular vesicle research. Expertise in bioinformatics is also desirable but not essential. The candidate must value teamwork and collaboration, have good administrative and interpersonal skills, and high computer literacy especially in relation to the analysis of DNA sequences and the use of bioinformatics software.
