Job Details

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Single Cell Assay Development Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, Botnar Research Centre, Windmill Road, Oxford, OX3 7LD We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to develop novel single cell multi-omics assays in multiple myeloma to study the tumour and its immune and stromal microenvironment in the bone marrow. You will be working in an interdisciplinary team across the Medical Sciences (Old Road) Campus at Oxford University within the Oxford Translational Myeloma Centre (OTMC). As a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Single Cell Assay Development, you will also work closely with academic and industry collaborators at institutions in Oxford, the UK, and abroad to develop assays to investigate the spatial interactions of the myeloma tumour and its immune and stromal environment.

A key aspect of this role is managing own academic research and administrative activities around the biochemical, molecular and functional characterisation of single cell assays, adapting existing and developing new scientific techniques and experimental protocols around various microfluidics, cell-based systems, sequencing and imaging. You will also participate in and contribute directly to scientific discussions with other members of the research group and collaborators on the project. You will be responsible for oversight of the daily housekeeping and biological safety of the laboratory area and performing any other comparable duties as may be required to ensure the efficient running of the laboratory.

As a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Single Cell Assay Development, you must hold a Ph.D./DPhil degree (or near completion) in Cell/Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, or related discipline. You will also have documented experience in single cell technologies including but not limited to next generation sequencing, spatial transcriptomics or proteomics, or multiplexed imaging such as immune mass cytometry or immune fluorescence. Experience in standard and advanced Cell/Molecular Biology and Biochemistry techniques is essential. Experience in processing and analysing samples and transcriptomic/proteomic datasets is desirable.

This is a full-time post, fixed-term contract for 24 months in the first instance.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 23/04/2024. Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a supporting statement as part of your online application.
