MRC Postdoctoral Scientist – LMS 766

A 3-year postdoctoral position is available in the newly renamed MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences to work within the Transgenerational Epigenetics and Evolution laboratory headed by Dr Peter Sarkies. The major interest of the TEE lab is how epigenetic mechanisms, particularly those that are involved in silencing transposable elements, connect to evolutionary processes, both within species and in generating diversity between species. To study these questions we use a variety of approaches including comparative genomics, C. elegans genetics and molecular biology and mammalian cell culture.

UKRI Innovation/Rutherford Fund Postdoctoral Fellowship – LMS 767

A 3-year postdoctoral position is available at Imperial College London and the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) to work in the Molecular Systems group headed by Dr Tobias Warnecke. The post holder will also closely interact with the Computational Protein Biology group led by Joe Marsh at the MRC Human Genetics Unit, University of Edinburgh.
We are looking for an outstanding postdoctoral scientist to work at the intersection of population genetics, molecular evolution, and protein structural biology. Amongst other things, we are interested in predicting the joint impact of two or more amino acid variants on protein structure and protein complex formation, using globinopathies as a model system. There is scope for excellent candidates to develop their own project ideas.
