We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our research group studying the role of myocardial high-energy phosphate metabolism in the development of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure. The post involves the biochemical characterisation of the cardiac phenotype of transgenic models of perturbed creatine and phosphocreatine content.
You will be well-organised and able to work independently and contribute conceptually to the overall research programme of our multidisciplinary group.
You will have demonstrable expertise in the biochemistry of cellular energy metabolism and experience in working with heart preparations and in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in biological samples would be an advantage. This British Heart Foundation-funded post is initially for two and a half years with the possibility of extension thereafter and is available immediately.
Informal inquires about the group’s research activities can be made to the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine. Further particulars, which detail the application procedure, should be obtained from: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/fp/ or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Please quote reference V8/SN/011.
The closing date for applications is 11 April 2008. Interviews will be held as soon as possible after the closing date.
As an Equal Opportunity employer, we positively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds
