The Buckley lab at the department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience (PDN), University of Cambridge is recruiting a Research Assistant or Research Associate to help further develop their optogenetic technology. The lab uses optogenetic and live confocal imaging approaches within the whole zebrafish neural tube and mammalian embryo stem cell (mESC) culture to manipulate the polarity of single cells. In combination with CRISPR-mediated functional knock down experiments, we are directly testing the role of cell polarity in building epithelial integrity during organ development and breaking in it during normal developmental processes such as EMT and during abnormal disease states.
The post is for 1 year in the first instance from early 2020 and funding is available for potential contract extension.
