Research Fellow - Single Cell Transcriptomics in normal gut and Crohn's Disease (Vacancy Ref: 051065)

Centre Name: Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre at the University of Edinburgh

Closing date: 17 February 2020


A Postdoctoral Research Associate post is available to join the Helmsley Trust funded Crohn’s Disease single cell transcriptomics research programme led by the University of Edinburgh. The main goals of the programme are to provide an integrated dataset of scRNA-Sequence data mapped onto high-resolution 2-D and 3-D atlas from both normal intestines and Crohn’s Disease, focussing on the terminal ileum and ascending colon. This spatially organised platform will allow interrogation of location and disease-specific transcriptomic data providing novel insights into Crohn’s Disease pathogenesis and progression. The post-holder will work in a multi-disciplinary research team using state-of-the-art approaches to collect, process, analyse and interpret samples from normal intestines and Crohn’s affected intestines for single cell RNA-sequencing. He/she is expected to contribute to multiple aspects of the programme, but skills and experience with human tissues and single cell experimental protocols are highly desirable.

Salary: £33,797 - £40,322
