Postdoc position available – cardiac extracellular vesicles

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellow position funded by the British Heart Foundation in the laboratory of Dr Patrizia Camelliti, in the Cardiovascular Section of the School of Biosciences and Medicine, University of Surrey. The aim of the project is to advance understanding of the mechanisms of cell-cell communication in the heart, with a specific focus on extracellular vesicles. The work will be conducted in collaboration with Professor Aled Clayton (Cardiff University), Dr Konstantinos Savvatis (Barts Heart Centre), and Professor John McVey (University of Surrey). The work will include functional analysis of cardiac cells/tissue and detailed analysis of extracellular vesicles cargo.

We are looking for a positive and energetic individual with experience in extracellular vesicles, cell culture, proteomics, RNA seq, bioinformatics, confocal microscopy and FACS. Experience in iPSC generation, culture and differentiation, and electrophysiological methods would constitute an advantage. Competency in data analysis and scientific writing (as evidenced by authorship of peer-reviewed publications) is fundamental. We are looking for an individual able to work and think independently as well as interact positively with colleagues and collaborators. Your PhD could be in Molecular Biology, Biosciences, Biomedical Sciences, Biotechnology, or related subjects.
