The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a world leader in genomic research, with an expanding scientific programme dedicated to understanding gene function in health & disease.
The Billker team (http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Teams/faculty/billker/) studies malaria parasites of rodents to understand fundamental aspects of parasite biology, pathogen-host interactions and mosquito transmission (Cell 117:503; Genes & Dev 22:1051). We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to develop new experimental genetic approaches for the identification of molecular pathways and mechanisms regulating the parasite’s complex life cycle, as it alternates between a vertebrate and a mosquito host.
We are looking for a highly motivated and independent individual, who can demonstrate skills in infection biology, cell biology, signal transduction research or the biology of model organisms. Applicants must have a PhD.
Postdoctoral Fellows are typically in their first or second postdoctoral position as part of a period of early career research training. This is up to 3 year fixed-term contract.
Informal enquiries can be made to Oliver Billker (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Salary from £27,450 to £33,115 per annum dependent on experience
We offer a comprehensive range of benefits including a final salary pension scheme and excellent on-site facilities. Further details can be found on our website https://jobs.sanger.ac.uk,
