Postdoctoral Research Associate: University of Edinburgh -Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies

Important description
Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the Division of Developmental Biology at The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh. The position is to help develop novel medium conditions for the in vitro culture of avian stem cells in the laboratory of Dr M. McGrew. This research will be part of an effort to establish a biobank for poultry breeds using primordial germ cells. The post will require the culturing of chicken stem cells, development of serum-free culture conditions, and analysis of cell signalling pathways controlling stem cell self-renewal. There will be future opportunities to interact with projects involving gene targeting and germ cell migration.

Applicants must have a PhD in the biological sciences and three year relevant research experience. This post would be suitable to a highly motivated, enthusiastic individual who wishes to combine stem cell research with avian developmental biology.
