Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is offering postdoctoral associate position in tropical medicine. Candidates are welcome before September 20, 2019.

We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to develop novel methods to genetically manipulate insects within the research group of Professor Frank Jiggins in the Department of Genetics. The project aims to use Drosophila as a model to develop new technologies that can then be transferred to non-model species such as disease vectors and pests. The work will involve developing cutting-edge methods in genetic manipulation to allow the efficient manipulation of Drosophila genomes without the need to microinject embryos. The work will be in close collaboration with a post-doctoral researcher in the group of Dr Grant Hughes at the Liverpool School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who will transfer these techniques to other species.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate who holds a PhD in a relevant discipline. It is essential that the candidate has experience in Drosophila genetics, molecular biology and the genetic manipulation of insects.

Click the ‘Apply’ button below to register an account with our recruitment system (if you have not already) and apply online.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 5 July 2022 in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.

The University actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society.

Deadline: September 20, 2019
