Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Full time, fixed term until 31 March 2022. Closing date: 25 April 2019 at 5pm.
To apply visit www.vacancies.ed.ac.uk and enter reference 047411.
We are seeking an independent and motivated scientist to establish high content screening (HCS) assays for studies of cancer stem cell function. The postholder will work independently to setup and utilise the Operetta screening platform. He/she has the exciting opportunity to work across CRUK-funded labs (Forbes, Pollard and , Ottersbach) to establish in a co-ordinated manner cell-based phenotypic assays that can be exploited in studies of normal and tumour-derived stem cells (neural, liver and blood lineages). Also the postholder will be involved in quantitative tissue analysis. Although you will be based at the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine, we are also seeking somebody who can also act in a strategic role to establish co-ordinated screening efforts with other groups at the Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre.
