Applications are invited for an enthusiastic and motivated Post-Doctoral Research Associate/Research Assistant to work in the laboratory of Dr Simon Bamforth at the Newcastle University Cardiovascular Research Centre, based in the Institute of Genetic Medicine, to investigate the transcriptional regulatory mechanisms that control cardiovascular development.
