Life Sciences Postdoctoral Research Scientist – University Of Dundee, UK

Postdoctoral Research Scientist For Research Students At University Of Dundee – UK 2009

Position Description:
A position is available for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to work with Dr Simon Arthur. The major focus of the lab is on understanding how transcriptional regulation by mitogen-activated protein kinases regulates the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and interferons in the innate immune system and how these same kinase cascades promote the resolution of inflammation via the activation of negative feedback mechanisms. Research in this area is critical because chronic inflammation is a contributing factor to the development of many diseases, including arthritis, systemic lupus, asthma, psoriasis and diabetes, yet relatively few effective drugs to treat chronic inflammation have been developed. Moreover, even the available drugs do not promote the resolution of inflammation but instead rely on long-term immunosuppression, which can result in serious side effects.

More Information:
The MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit is a major international centre for research on cell signalling. Its equipment, infrastructure and research funding matches the highest international standards and its innovative collaboration with the pharmaceutical industry (The Division of Signal Transduction Therapy) received a Queen’s Anniversary Award in 2006. For further information consult the Unit’s website: (http://www.ppu.mrc.ac.uk/).
The post is for 2 years and offers a planned period of training and development for post-doctoral scientists who have just completed their doctoral studies or post-doctoral researchers wishing to move into a new research discipline.
