Research Fellow ( Cell Biology)

MRC Human Genetics Unit

Expiry Date: 6 July 2015

Salary Scale: £31,342 - £37,394

Overview: A postdoctoral post funded by the Wellcome Trust and Royal Society is available in Dr Maria Christophorou's group to investigate the role of the post-translational modification citrullination in stem cells, under physiological and pathological conditions. The post is for three years initially, with possibility to extend for a further two years. Cell and mouse model systems will be used to study the role of the citrullinating enzymes peptidylarginine deiminases (PADIs) in regulating self-renewal. The successful applicant will be part of a dynamic and multidisciplinary group using molecular, biochemical, cell biological and in vivo approaches to characterise the molecular mechanisms that control citrullination and its consequences for cell physiology and disease (e.g. Christophorou et al., Nature 507, 104).
