An exciting job opportunity as a Postdoctoral Research Associate is
available at Newcastle University (Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom),
between the Institute of Genetic Medicine (IGM) and the School of Computing
(CS). The RA will conduct experimental work in a multidisciplinary team,
comprising Dr Roman Bauer (CS), Prof. Majlinda Lako (IGM) and Prof. Evelyne
Sernagor (Institute of Neuroscience).

The successful candidate will work on a project studying the impact of
cryopreservation on different kinds of biological tissues, including mouse
retina and retinal organoids. Cryogenic processing protocols will be tested
and assessed using a wide range of experimental methods, taking into
account anatomy, gene expression and electrical activity. The goal of the
project led by Dr Roman Bauer, in collaboration with GE Healthcare and
CERN, is to model and improve tissue cryopreservation to yield high-quality
post-thaw tissue.

Applicants should have a PhD in a bioscience discipline, and experience in
several wet-lab techniques. Moreover, applicants will need to demonstrate a
record of research success and the ability to work independently and as
part of a team.

Specific responsibilities of position:


   Conduct and coordinate wet-lab experiments (e.g. immunostaining,
   electrophysiology, qPCR, …) using different tissues

   Collate and integrate data gathered from across the project, including
   data from potentially new collaborators

   Work with project partners, including internal and external academic
   cooperators and industrial stakeholders.

   Train inexperienced researchers and students in basic wet-lab methods

   Present results at internal and external meetings, seminars and
   professional conferences

   Write reports and research manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals of
   international standing

   Student project supervision

The post is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research
Council (EPSRC) and tenable for 32 months on a full-time basis. As part of
your application, please provide a CV and covering letter which details
your prior experience in experimental work.

For informal enquiries please contact Dr Roman Bauer (roman.bauer at ncl.ac.uk
