Research Laboratory Technician (Fixed Term)

Funded by the BBSRC, we are looking to hire two researchers, a post doctoral researcher and a Technician (this post) to investigate the role of bZIP transcription factors in the regulation of the circadian clock in the model plant Arabidopsis. This is a collaboration between Professor Alex Webb (Cambridge) and Professor Michel Vincentz (Campinas, Brazil). The PDRA and technician will form a team with other members of our laboratory to perform RNAseq, genetic, physiological and protein-protein interaction and phosphorylation studies to resolve how bZIP63 regulates the expression of the circadian clock gene PRR7 in response to sugars. We are seeking applications from candidates with appropriate experience. Relevant laboratory experience is essential for both posts. For the technical post education up to BSc standard is desirable.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3 years in the first instance. You will need to start before 1 May 2019.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
