We are pleased to announce a call for applications for a BBSRC funded post-doctoral researcher position in the lab of Dr Jonathan Chubb in the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology ( The lab has developed powerful technologies to image pulses of gene expression in living cells (Curr Biol 24:205-11, PNAS 109:7350-5, Curr Biol 16:1018-25). We use a combination of live cell imaging, modeling and molecular genetics to understand the mechanistic basis of gene expression pulses, how they are responsive to signals, developmental and chromatin context and the implications of pulsatile gene expression on the generation of diversity between cells in developmental and clinical contexts.
The position is available to start from 1st August 2014 for 2 years, initially.
Candidates are expected to be exceptional, highly motivated scientists who have a strong track record of research in a relevant area of the life and/or physical sciences.
