The Opportunity

An exciting opportunity has become available for a Research Fellow to join the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing, and Health Sciences on a 2-year and 2-months fixed-term basis. In this role, you will be reporting directly to Dr Fasseli Coulibaly and will be asked to provide a range of high-level research services and further develop your research expertise in cryo-electron microscopy through the pursuit of defined projects relevant to the field of structural and molecular virology.

This can include:

  • Proactively undertake a range of research, under limited supervision, and contribute to the production of conference and seminar papers and publications from that research

  • Occasionally contribute to the teaching team in relation to their research projects 

  • Actively coordinating experimental design and operating advanced laboratory and technical equipment or conducting advanced research procedures 

  • Attending meetings associated with research or work of the organisational unit to which the research is connected 

  • Providing accurate and timely advice to junior lab members and/or postgraduate research projects within the field of research

This position is suited to a highly motivated individual who holds a doctoral qualification in biochemistry or virology. Additionally, the successful candidate will ideally have highly developed computer literacy, demonstrate knowledge and experience in molecular biology and biochemistry including recombinant protein production, purification, and characterisation by biophysical approaches. A demonstrated experience in cryo-electron microscopy is essential. They should quickly adapt to and learn new methodologies.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.
