You will be working with the Project Leader and other members of the department and the Warwick Integrative Synthetic Biology Centre (WISB) on an interdisciplinary synthetic biology project aimed at reducing stochastic fluctuations in mammalian cells. The work will focus on the mechanisms involved in transcription in order to identify ways to control single-cell mRNA variation. The project will combine genome-editing techniques with single-cell techniques including RNA-FISH and flow cytometry, supplemented by computational and mathematical approaches for data analysis.
You will have a PhD degree in a relevant field and should already have worked on or developed an interest in systems biology or synthetic biology. You will also have experience in working with mammalian cells lines, imaging techniques, and flow cytometry. Some familiarity with genome editing and mathematical/computational modelling would be desirable.http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/ATS273/research-fellow-75434-124/
