Applications are invited the above post to work on a large NIEHS (USA) funded project. The successful candidate will join a multi-national team of scientists from the UK and USA who are investigating the trans-generational consequences (both epigenetic and physiological) of in utero exposure to environmental chemicals (ECs) on metabolic health and reproductive function of offspring. The successful candidate will be based at the University of Nottingham (UK) but will collaborate with colleagues at the Universities of Glasgow (UK) and Michigan (USA).
The project utilises an established sheep model and addresses three specific aims. These are the effects of EC exposure on (i) metabolic health, (ii) reproductive function and (iii) epigenetic mechanisms underpinning transgenerational modifications to metabolic health and reproductive function.
There is one post available and, depending on qualifications, candidates should apply for the Research Assistant role (candidates with a Degree) or the Research Associate/Fellow role (candidates with a PhD (or close to completion)). Job title will be ‘Research Associate’ where an appointment is made before PhD is completed).
Evidence of use of state-of-the-art molecular (e.g., epigenomics, RNAseq) techniques and associated bioinformatics is essential for the role.
The successful candidate will be based at the University of Nottingham, but a willingness to travel within the UK to meet with collaborators in Glasgow, and possibly with our partner at Michigan University in the USA, is desirable.
This full-time (36.25 hours) post is available from 1st November 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter and will be offered on a fixed-term contract to 30th November 2024. Job share arrangements may be considered.
