BHF Centre of Regenerative Medicine: 2 x Postdoctoral Research Associates

BHF Centre of Regenerative Medicine

The BHF Centre of Regenerative Medicine was recently renewed (2017-2021) and is now looking to recruit two outstanding postdoctoral research associates for three years. The Centre was established in 2013 as one of three national research hubs specialising in cardiovascular regeneration. Membership of the Centre provides a unique opportunity to collaborate with researchers across the partnership (Universities of Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, Manchester, and Oxford) and with the Imperial and Edinburgh -led Centres. Annual review meetings and cross-Centre events present opportunities for discussion and showcasing of the research.

The positions are open in the groups of Dr Helle Jørgensen and Dr Sanjay Sinha.

The Jørgensen group studies regulation of cell plasticity and heterogeneity in regeneration and disease development with a particular focus on proliferative responses. The focus of the project will be on signalling and transcriptional networks regulating vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. The successful applicant will have a PhD in a relevant subject and experience in cell and molecular biology. Experience with genomics data analysis, development of high throughput assays and/or using animal models is desirable but not essential. Please follow the link for further details and for instructions to apply.

The Sinha group has pioneered the generation of epicardium from human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells (hESC and hiPSC), and are using this in vitro system to understand the molecular regulation of epicardial function, and to produce cells and identify potential new drugs for regenerative medicine. The successful applicant will have a PhD with a background in bioinformatics, experience with the analysis of NGS data, and programming skills (R, Python). Please follow the link for further details and for instructions to apply.

The Centre will also be looking to recruit a bioinformatician at the Research Assistant level - details will be added here soon.
