Research Technician

Imperial College London
Hammersmith Campus, London
Closing date: Tue 3 Oct 2017

A Research Technician position in Molecular and Cell Biology is available in the Department of Medicine, Imperial College London.

You will work on a programme funded by a Wellcome Trust Joint Investigator Award entitled Cellular thyroid hormone availability: regulation of development and tissue repair, and pathogenesis of degenerative disease. This £2 million initiative will determine molecular and cellular mechanisms underpinning the regulation of tissue homeostasis and repair by thyroid hormones, and their role in skeletal disease.

The Molecular Endocrinology Laboratory employs state-of-the-art high-throughput imaging and functional phenotyping, together with next generation sequencing and bioinformatics, in a whole organism and systems biology approach. You will receive comprehensive training in order to provide up-to-date technical expertise in cell culture, investigation of molecular mechanisms and signalling pathways, and skeletal phenotyping. You will also contribute to general administration and management of the laboratory.

You will hold good A level grades or equivalent in at least two appropriate scientific subjects in a field appropriate to the research project and have experience of molecular and cell biology and working with in vivo models. A Personal Home Office License (PPL) and experience in bone biology would be advantageous but not essential.

You will have excellent organisation and practical laboratory skills with meticulous record keeping and attention to detail. The ability to work as part of a team is essential.
