049581 Postdoctoral Research Associate
Clasificación del trabajo: Profesionales científicos e intelectuales.
Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:
Pilizota lab at SynthSys, University of Edinburgh seeks a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to undertake research in bacterial growth at high external osmolarities.
Prokaryotic growth can be modulated in different ways, including temperature, antibiotics, toxins, nutrients, and osmolarity.
While the effects of nutrients have been extensively characterized, a common modulation of bacterial growth occurs in response to changes in external osmolarity, and it remains poorly understood.
We hypothesize that the osmotically induced growth slowdown can be explained by examining several physiological variables and the successful applicant will measure them using both single-cell microscopy and microbiology population assays.
She/he will integrate the results with a mathematical model as well.
The post holder will have an opportunity to join an interdisciplinary group composed of PhD students and PDRAs with backgrounds in physics, engineering, biology, biotechnology and similar fields, and should enjoy the challenge and opportunity of working in such a diverse group.
The post-holder will work primarily with Dr Teuta Pilizota and her team but will be encouraged to interact with researchers at SynthSys (Synthetic and Systems Biology Centre www.synthsys.ed.ac.uk) at University of Edinburgh, UK.
The is hosted by the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Edinburgh and offers an exciting and collaborative research environment.
Excellent facilities are available including computational biology, molecular genetics, biochemistry and biophysics, contemporary ‘omics technologies, stem cell biology and DNA synthesis.
Fixed-term for 3 years.
