Research Fellow

Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine

Expiry Date: 20 November 2014

Salary Scale: £31,342 - £37,394

Overview: Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in the laboratory of Prof Val Brunton at the Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre (ECRC) within the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine, Western General Hospital campus. The Brunton lab investigates the role of adhesion-linked signalling pathways in tumour progression and normal cell homeostasis. The successful candidate will work on a project funded by DEBRA to uncover the role of the adhesion-linked protein Kindlin-1 in basic cell functions such as mitosis and cell cycle progression associated with tumour progression and the development of Kindler syndrome, an autosomal recessive genodermatosis that results from loss-of-function mutations in the KIND1 gene.
