Postoctoral research associate position available now in the group of Dr. Robert Knight at King’s College London

The post holder will work on a project entitled ‘Polycomb repressor complex protein EZH2 regulation of muscle stem cell migration and differentiation’ and is funded for 15 months.

This post is to work on a BBSRC-funded grant to investigate the role of an important chromatin modifying protein in controlling muscle stem cells during regeneration in zebrafish. The post holder will investigate the importance of the Polycomb Repressor Complex protein EZH2 in regulation of chromatin packaging, gene expression and cytoskeleton dynamics in muscle stem cells.
Using live cell imaging, immunolabelling and gene manipulation the post holder will investigate how manipulation of Ezh2 function and candidate target genes regulates muscle stem cell responses during regeneration.
A crucial requirement of the post holder is to therefore be comfortable working both independently and in a team. Applicants must have experience in molecular cloning, have excellent live cell imaging skills (ideally of zebrafish) and have an interest in utilizing cutting edge genomics techniques to explore the epigenetic regulation of gene expression. Experience in computational approaches to image analysis is desirable.
