Opening For Post-Doctoral Research Scientist - Edinburgh

Job Ref:     05-01-15

Moredun Research Institute is seeking an enthusiastic post-doctoral scientist with an interest in viral pathogenesis and/or cancer research to investigate host-pathogen interactions in ovine pulmonary adenocarcinoma (OPA), a virus-induced lung cancer of sheep. Your role will involve profiling of mRNA and microRNA expression in OPA tumours and analysis of selected cellular pathways that are dysregulated in lung cancer.

This post is funded by the BBSRC for 30 months. The study will provide insight into the pathogenesis of OPA and identify possible biomarkers that can be exploited to control this disease.

Applicants should have (or expect to obtain) a PhD in Virology, Cell Biology or a related subject. A background in molecular biology and cell culture is essential.  Preference will be given to candidates with experience in analysis of microRNA function or a background in studying oncogenic cell signalling pathways.

Moredun Research Institute is a world-leading organisation focused on improving animal health through targeted research and knowledge exchange activities. The institute is located near Edinburgh on a purpose-built research park in a scenic area at the foot of the Pentland Hills.  We offer an attractive benefits package, including a generous contributory pension scheme and six-weeks’ annual leave.
