Research Associate Jobs Vacancy at University College London London Jobs Details:

This is an opportunity for a Grade 7 postdoctoral research scientist funded by a Cystic Fibrosis Trust Strategic Research Centre grant to join a team of molecular geneticists and clinicians on an exciting project to develop gene editing therapies for lung disease of cystic fibrosis, a rare, recessively-inherited, respiratory disease caused by mutations is the CF gene.

Gene editing will be performed by CRISPR/Cas9, a powerful new technique with the potential to correct specific gene mutations at the chromosomal level, for long-term corrective therapy. CRISPR/Cas9 technologies for gene editing have developed rapidly in the past two years but optimizing the delivery of nucleic acids for gene editing with therapeutic applications for CF remains a challenge.

This post is based in the Experimental and Personalised Medicines Section of the Genetics & Genomic Medicine Programme at ICH. Our group has long-standing expertise in developing nanoparticle formulations for lung delivery of genetic therapies for respiratory diseases and combines that with the clinical expertise in CF at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Key Requirements
Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant subject with expertise in cell and molecular biology. They must have excellent cell culture skills and experience in the molecular analysis of gene expression. Effective communication skills, written and oral, will be essential. An interest in CF, nanoparticles and the challenges of gene delivery to the respiratory epithelium would be an advantage.
