Overview

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a talented Research Assistant to join the Dodd Group, working on cutting-edge science exploring circadian rhythms in plants.

About the Dodd Group

The Dodd Group investigates cellular processes underlying circadian rhythms in plants.

They focus on cell signalling pathways associated with the circadian clock, and mechanisms of plant adaptation to the daily fluctuating environment.
Research in the group combines molecular biology, genome-wide analyses and physiological analysis, under both laboratory and field conditions.

The role

You will enhance the output of the Dodd Group by contributing experimental, academic and administrative expertise.

This diverse role will provide you with a broad range of stimulating activities, including:

Performing experimentation
Supervising students and junior group members
Taking part in conferences, exhibitions and contributing to publications

The ideal candidate

You will have an excellent working knowledge of plant molecular biology and/or signal transduction, and experience of a variety of research methods relevant to the research group.

The successful candidate will also either have a PhD, or experience equivalent to a PhD, in a relevant field of molecular plant sciences, and also have excellent written and oral communication skills.
