We are looking to appoint an MRC Postdoctoral Fellow (PF) to join Miguel Martins’s lab ‘Mitochondria and cell death regulation following toxic injury’: https://www.mrc-tox.cam.ac.uk/research/l-m-martins-programme  

We employ multi-disciplinary approaches, including Drosophila genetics, quantitative fly behaviour analysis, RNAseq, metabolomics, quantitative proteomics, and microbiome analysis, to understand the consequences of mitochondrial dysfunction.

Applicants must hold, or be close to completing, a PhD in a relevant discipline such as Neurobiology or Immunology together with experience in Drosophila genetics and biochemical techniques; experience in expression in sleep analysis; in vivo functional imaging and neuronal tracing is desirable. Submission of at least one first author international peer-reviewed paper is expected as is the ability to work both independently and as part of a team, together with excellent communication and critical thinking skills.

This is a three year training and development position.
