About Exeter and the South West
College of Life and Environmental Sciences
The University of Exeter is a Russell Group University in the top one percent of institutions globally. In the last few years we have invested strategically to deliver more than GBP 350 million worth of new facilities across our campuses with plans for significant further investment over the next three to five years.
The College wishes to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to participate in a high profile ERC funded project entitled 'Understanding and exploiting the P450 insect resistome'. This post is available from March 2017 until December 2020. The fellow will be based in the Bass lab and be part of a thriving group comprising several PhD students, post-doctoral research fellows and technicians.
The successful applicant will design and carry out experiments to investigate the evolution of insect resistance to xenobiotics. A range of state-of-the-art molecular and bioinformatic approaches will be used including analysis of next-gen sequencing data, PCR, QPCR, in vitro and in vivo expression of candidate genes and biochemical assays. The post-holder will also contribute to other activities in the Bass lab and act as the day-to-day line manager of a 0.6 FTE technician.
The successful applicant will be able to develop research objectives, manuscripts, projects and proposals; identify sources of research funding and contribute to the process of securing funds, and make presentations at conferences and other events.
Applicants will possess a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification/experience in a related field of study. The successful applicant will be a nationally recognised authority in the field of insect molecular biology and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to develop research programmes and methodologies. The successful applicant will also be able to work collaboratively, supervise the work of others and act as team leader as required. Applicants should have experience in the majority of approaches detailed above.
