The King's College London British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre of Research Excellence is designed to nurture interdisciplinary collaborations and bench-to-bedside projects in cardiovascular research. The Faculty of Cardiovascular Medicine & Sciences is a core constituent of the BHF Centre where the cardiovascular proteomics group is led by Prof. Manuel Mayr. The cardiovascular proteomics research group is a state-of-the-art laboratory and has the latest mass spectrometry equipment at its disposal.
Applicants must hold a PhD in Biology/Biochemistry (or an equivalent scientific degree), be highly motivated, independent and senior enough to organise the work of technicians and biological or medical doctoral students and integrate themselves into a team. An excellent background in cardiovascular and molecular biology and experimental animal work are required, as is fluently spoken English. Persons without experience in mass spectrometry are also encouraged to apply.
The candidate will work in a very international and highly motivated, well-financed surrounding with most modern equipment. You will work on BHF-funded projects aimed at investigating the cellular and molecular pathways contributing to atherosclerosis. The post is full-time for 2 years with a possibility for prolongation (after evaluation).
Applications from junior and senior postdoctoral researchers are welcomed for this position as the salary will be based upon the candidate's experience and qualification. The salary will be paid at Grade 6, £37,412 to £40,568 per annum, including London Allowance.
