Position: Postdoctoral Scientist
Institution: University of Oxford
Location: Oxford, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
Duties: As a Postdoctoral Scientist, you will play a crucial role in unravelling the mysteries of proteopathic tau propagation, particularly the assembly and secretion of tau proteins in cellular models of tauopathy. You will undertake a multidisciplinary approach to discovering and validating spatial interactomes associated with pathological tau species
Requirements: It is essential that you hold a PhD/D.Phil. (or close to completion) in Neuroscience, Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Genetics/Genomics or related area. You will have research experience in the field of Neuroscience and in tissue culture (eg. immortalized cell lines and/or iPSC neurons/glia, ). You will have experience in general molecular biology techniques (eg. subcellular fractionation, immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting, and microscopy). Exceptional communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings are highly valued
   
Text: Postdoctoral Scientist Oxford-GSK Institute of Molecular and Computational Medicine, Centre for Human Genetics, Roosevelt Drive, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7BN We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Scientist to join the Fowler group, led by Oxford-GSK IMCM Fellow Dr. Fowler. The Fowler Lab focuses on molecular neurodegeneration and is committed to providing an inclusive and positive research environment focused on teamwork, creativity, and scientific excellence. As a Postdoctoral Scientist, you will play a crucial role in unravelling the mysteries of proteopathic tau propagation, particularly the assembly and secretion of tau proteins in cellular models of tauopathy. You will undertake a multidisciplinary approach to discovering and validating spatial interactomes associated with pathological tau species. Your responsibilities encompass the development of new subcellular fractionation and tau enrichment assays in cellular models of tauopathy and post-mortem human brain tissue samples. Your expertise will be crucial to the multimodal characterization of cellular microdomains associated with pathological tau species mislocalization, and you will be exposed to a variety of exciting techniques including structural mass spectrometry and cryo-electron microscopy and tomography. Your role extends to developing research questions, conducting independent research, and generating original ideas based on existing concepts. Additionally, you will provide clear task objectives, organize team efforts, and coach other team members on specialized methodologies. In a mentoring capacity, you will guide other lab members and graduate students. It is essential that you hold a PhD/D.Phil. (or close to completion) in Neuroscience, Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Genetics/Genomics or related area. You will have research experience in the field of Neuroscience and in tissue culture (eg. immortalized cell lines and/or iPSC neurons/glia,).
