Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Division of Biosciences
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The postholder will work as part of a research programme that focuses on the role of mechanotransduction at epithelial tight junctions in epithelial differentiation and dynamics, and early development. The aim is to analyse the molecular mechanisms as to how tension at tight junctions is transmitted from the adhesion proteins to the cytoskeleton and the roles such processes play during epithelial cell dynamics and differentiation in vitro and in vivo
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD (or about to submit) in a biological, biochemical or biophysical discipline. Proven knowledge of good molecular, cellular and developmental biology and cell physics is essential, as is ability to carry out molecular, cell, developmental biology and genetic techniques and ability to perform confocal microscopy and in vivo image analysis in zebrafish and related quantitative analysis
