In 2013 the University of Oxford in partnership with the Universities of Cambridge and Bristol was awarded £2.5 million over 4 years to establish a British Heart Foundation Centre of Regenerative Medicine (BHF CRM). This is one of three national research hubs specialising in cardiovascular regeneration funded by the BHF.
An opportunity is offered for a suitably qualified candidate to work as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in one of the Oxford groups on a project (www.cardioscience.ox.ac.uk/bhf-centre-of-regenerative-medicine) which contributes to one of the main research themes of the Centre:
Theme Cardiovascular stem cell physiology
Project Title Pathways activating cardiac progenitor potential and proliferation during
zebrafish heart regeneration
This post will be funded until 30 September 2017 in the first instance by the British Hearth Foundation UKCRM Centre award. The post would be ideally suited to a postdoctoral scientist with experience in working with animal models, tissue and cell culture, microscopy and standard molecular and biochemical techniques.
