Vacancy Ref: 061867
Salary (grade 6/7) : £29,176 - £32,817/£35,845 - £40,322 per annum
We have an exciting opportunity for a Research Assistant/Associate to join the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation MRC University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) working with the Principal Investigators, Dr Stephen Carter and Professor David Bhella.
The applicant will make essential contributions to a research programme focused on understanding virus-host interactions using cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) combined with cryogenic correlated light and electron microscopy (cryo-CLEM) and cryo-focused ion beam (cryo-FIB) milling.
The project will focus on understanding the replication machinery of clinically important negative-sense RNA viruses.
Specifically, the project will investigate the relationships between the virus replication machinery and cellular organelles, such as endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria.
The successful candidate will be self-motivated in designing and executing imaging experiments, and analysis of the data, collected using cutting edge cryo-electron tomography techniques and sub-tomogram averaging.
The CVR is a unique international research centre with a critical mass of researchers entirely dedicated to the study of viral diseases (www.cvr.ac.uk; www.facebook.com/centreforvirusresearch; https://twitter.com/cvrinfo).
Research at the CVR spans molecular, structural and cellular levels through to the individual host and affected population, integrating molecular and structural virology, cell biology, pathogenesis, epidemiology and mathematical modelling, virus genomics and bioinformatics.
This post has funding until 31 March 2023.
For enquiries regarding the post, please contact Dr Stephen Carter: Stephen.Carter@glasgow.ac.uk.
