Research Associates x3 (Fixed Term)

Salary: £27,854-£36,298 pa

Reference: RB00980

Closing date: 01 April 2013

Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Research positions focusing on the molecular pathogenesis of human myleoproliferative neoplasms and malignant haematopoiesis.  The posts form part of a research programme directed by Professor Tony Green in collaboration with Professor Bertie Gottgens (CIMR) and Dr Peter Campbell (Sanger Institute) (eg NEJM 356: 459, 2007; NEJM 359: 2778, 2008; Nature 461: 819, 2009; Cancer Cell 18: 524, 2010; NEJM 365: 1384, 2011; Developmental Cell 20: 597, 2011). 

The Green lab is based in the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research. Projects are available in several areas including:

1) Mutational landscape of myeloproliferative neoplasms, building on results of exome and genome sequencing – will require expertise in genome-scale approaches.

2) Transcriptional consequences of JAK2 mutations.  This will focus on STAT transcriptional programmes together with non-canonical JAK signalling and will entail ChIP-seq and other genome-scale approaches.

3) Molecular and cellular consequences of JAK2 mutations with a focus on signalling, DNA damage and DNA replication.
