Senior Laboratory Research Scientist: The Francis Crick Institute


Organ Morphodynamics Laboratory
The Francis Crick Institute

Date Posted: 04/26/2021
City: London
Country: United Kingdom
Primary Category: Research 
Type of Position: Research Scientist


Description and Details:

Our lab focuses on the mechano-molecular control of organ development using zebrafish as a model system. The broad goal of the lab is to unravel the underlying mechanical, molecular and geometric interactions that transforms a developing heart from a simple epithelium into a highly intricate patterned organ. The lab has generous core-funding support and access to state-of-the-art facilities and technology platforms including Advanced light microscopy, High throughput sequencing, Bioinformatics and Image analysis help desk. The Francis Crick is a modern, world class biomedical research institute in central London. The Francis Crick and the participating organizations (UCL, Imperial College London and King's College London) offer a highly inclusive, collaborative and thriving research community with many career development opportunities. 

The post holder is expected to develop tools and technologies, carry out research projects, manage day-today lab operations and train PhDs and postdocs. They will generate transgenic lines/CRISPR mutants/knock-ins, use advanced microscopic techniques/image analysis and genetic manipulations to study the fundamentals of heart morphogenesis. The suitable candidate should be strongly inclined to lead independent research projects as well as support lab’s ongoing projects and should be willing to collaborate within and outside the lab. The suitable candidate should have strong expertise in zebrafish genetics, good background in advanced confocal imaging and a track record of writing papers as evidenced by publications/preprints in the relevant field.
