Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?Do you have a background in microfluidics and single cell functional genomic analysis of reproductive cells? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive Universities?
We are looking to recruit a full time Research Assistant to provide high quality laboratory support to project funded by an ESPRC Impact Acceleration Award. The research will investigate the compatibility of time-lapse imaging and nanosensor integration with microfluidic culture of embryos as a means to improve the efficacy infertility treatment. This funding for this project has been awarded to Professor Helen Picton who leads the Reproduction and Early Development Research Group within the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine in the School of Medicine at Leeds University. The project will be conducted in collaboration with Dr Virginia Pensabene and Dr Paolo Actis from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Leeds University.
Applicants should hold a PhD in a subject relevant to reproductive biology and/or metabolism which is supported by extensive laboratory experience and a broad technical skill base in assisted reproduction technologies, gamete and embryo culture, metabolomics and single cell molecular biology.
