Job Description

Postdoctoral Scientist
- Imperial College, London, UK

Description: Applications are invited for a post-doctoral Research Associate for the Eukaryotic Chromatin Dynamics Group, within the Division of Clinical Sciences, Imperial College, London.

This post provides an opportunity for a highly motivated individual to participate in the Eukaryotic Chromatin Dynamics group headed by Dr Veronica Yu. The group’s research is focused on the cell cycle proteins Cks1 and 2 and how they contribute to cell cycle progression, chromatin structure and cancer progression. The project aims to identify novel biological pathways through which cell cycle proteins contribute to cancer progression in a variety of tissues. The group uses a range of standard molecular and cell biology techniques including mass spectrometry for complex protein identification. The candidate should preferably have a strong background in protein biochemistry.

The proposed work is in a highly competitive field and will demand a high degree of commitment. The successful candidate will be expected to take an active part in the academic activities of the CSC, including contributing to journal club and seminar presentations, and where appropriate to present data at national and international meetings, and to write up and publish work in good peer-reviewed journals.

  • Investigator scientist posts are permanent posts for post-docs with some years of experience.


  • PhD in biochemistry, molecular biology or other relevant discipline.
  • Experience in molecular biology and biochemistry. Prior experience of working with mass spec is preferred but not essential.
