- £26495 to £32548 per annum, depending on skills and experience (minimum £29799 with relevant PhD). Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance
Applications are invited from highly motivated candidate to the above role to investigate and perform research to disseminate findings on a project funded by the MRC entitled “Charecterisation of Cohesin complex in atypical cell division in malaria parasite” with the supervision of Professor Rita Tewari.
The research will involve identifying the role of cohesion complexes in deciphering and understanding atypical mitosis and meiosis in malaria parasite. The work involves gene targeting using malaria parasite, manipulating parasite development in the host and mosquito vector, and mostly focus on cell biology and proteomics approaches to study protein interactions and novel complexes involved in atypical parasite cell division.
Candidates must hold a PhD, (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area – molecular parasitology, yeast genetics, proteomics, cell biology, genetics and profound knowledge of molecular biology and protein biochemistry.
