Opening For Post-doctoral Research Assistant - Aberystwyth

 Job Ref: IBERS.14.28
(Fixed term for 12 months)
 
The Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) is a world class research centre at Aberystwyth University.
 
A postdoctoral scientist, with molecular biology experience and interests in the ecology of infectious disease or ecological immunology, is required to join the culminating year of a Leverhulme Trust-funded project, on Thermal variation and immunity in ectothermic vertebrates. This work, using the 3-spined stickleback model, combines RNAseq and high throughput RT-PCR analysis of gene expression with large-scale field and experimental mesocosm studies. The aim is to pin-point seasonal patterns in immune expression and function, and in vulnerability to infectious disease, and to establish how these might be affected under thermal climate change scenarios.
 
Interested applicants may informally contact Dr Joe Jackson (jaj11@aber.ac.uk) for further details regarding this project.
