Postdoc Position at Imperial College London

A new opening postdoctoral position in microbiology is available at Imperial College London, UK. The deadline for applying is July 25, 2019.

A 1-year postdoctoral position is available at the Institute of Clinical Sciences (ICS) at Imperial College to work in the Host-Microbe Co-metabolism Group headed by Dr Filipe Cabreiro. We are located on the Hammersmith Hospital Campus in West London (W12). The Institute has first-class facilities and provides investigators from clinical and basic science backgrounds with the opportunity to pursue innovative, multidisciplinary research within the excellence of Imperial College.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative postdoctoral scientist to join a diverse research team that works at the intersection of organismal biology, metabolism, pharmacology and the Microbiota.

You will aim to make a major contribution to our ongoing research program and, in addition, develop and carry out your own line of research within the group's areas of interest and expertise. Currently, we are interested with how the microbial communities regulate host health and disease.

You must have a strong publication record, excellent verbal and written communication skills, and a track record of addressing scientific problems in an innovative, creative, thoughtful and systematic manner. You should have an experimental background and should have substantive experience in molecular techniques and microbiology. Candidates keen to mix wet and dry lab computational work are particularly encouraged to apply. Whatever your background, a keen interest in metabolism and the role of the microbiota is necessary.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 34,397- 37,486 per annum.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published. For more information, see evaluation/

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
