The MRC Toxicology Unit is an internationally renowned institution and world leader in studying the mechanisms underlying toxicology and disease. Our research impacts directly on human health with implications for reducing adverse drug reactions, predicting toxicological responses, drug attrition and bringing new insights into novel treatments for disease. The Unit has state of the art facilities with comprehensive expertise in imaging, proteomics, bioinformatics, genomics and ultrastructural pathology.
The Unit is seeking to appoint a senior scientist to lead the Electron Microscopy and Ultrastructural Pathology facility which supports the work of the Unit’s research programmes. The role requires an individual with significant knowledge and experience of characterising pathological changes at the ultrastructural level. In addition, the postholder will be required to establish new technologies and methodologies ensuring the facility is evolving its ulrastructural capabilities to fully support the Unit’s Scientific Strategy. The postholder will operate and maintain the Unit’s Electron Microscopes and oversee the running of the facility, including management of two members of staff.
The successful candidate will have a first degree in Life Sciences, a PhD utilising electron microscopy and an extensive relevant publication record.
