£36,028 - £43,533 per annumThe UCL Institute of Prion Diseases is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join the group of Dr Peter Kloehn in investigating the cellular mechanism of prion replication in collaboration with Prof Sharon Tooze at the Francis Crick Institute. This study benefits from state-of-the-art imaging facilities and aims to better characterize how prions propagate in a self-templating manner in neuronal cells and how they colonize the central nervous system in mice. Expertise in coding deep learning-assisted image analysis would be an advantage. The post holder is not required to conduct animal experiments.

The MRC Prion Unit offers a range of career opportunities for scientists, researchers, lab technicians, management and administrative support staff.
