Research Fellow in Thrombosis

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a background in biophysics?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic researcher to work on a British Heart Foundation funded programme grant aimed at investigating the role of fibrin clot structure in thrombosis. The research programme involves recombinant expression of blood protein fibrinogen, followed by investigation of fibrin clot structure and function using a wide variety of molecular and biophysical experimental approaches. You will be based within the Thrombosis Collective in the Department of Discovery and Translational Science and work together with a dynamic and productive multidisciplinary research team.

With a PhD in biophysics ((or passed PhD with minor corrections at the point of application) in biophysics or a closely allied discipline and a strong background in biophysical research on a relevant biological polymer you will work effectively within the team and have excellent inter-personal and organisational skills. You will preferably have a strong background in thrombosis or related research.
