Detail information about job Research Associate in Biophysics of Bacterial Killing by the Immune System. Terms and conditions vacancy
We are recruiting for the position of a postdoctoral Research Associate on a project funded by the UK Medical Research Council, to be carried out in Bart Hoogenboom’s research group at the London Centre for Nanotechnology, in close collaboration with Suzan Rooijakkers’s lab at University Medical Centre Utrecht (the Netherlands). The aim of the project is to determine the mechanism(s) by which pore forming proteins of the innate immune system attack and kill bacteria. To this end, the postdoc will develop and apply advanced nanoscale microscopy methods for the real-time imaging of live bacteria at nanometre resolution.
The position is funded for 3 years in the first instance.
The successful applicant will have a PhD in a relevant area of Life Sciences or Physical Sciences, and expertise on advanced microscopy techniques for the characterisation of biological samples at the level of single or few molecules. Candidates should have an ability for creative and original research of the highest impact, as demonstrated by a scientific publication track record in highly regarded international journals. Knowledge of in-liquid atomic force microscopy, fluorescence microscopy and microbiology is desirable.
