This job ad is out of date. Find related Jobs here.

The Francis Crick institute (the Crick) is a partnership between the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the Wellcome Trust, University College London (UCL), Imperial College London and Kings College London. It is a registered charity whose purpose is to conduct biomedical research into all aspects of human health and disease. The institute will be a world-leading centre of biomedical research and innovation. It will promote connections between researchers and disciplines and between academic institutions, healthcare organisations and businesses. Dedicated to research excellence, the institute will have the scale, vision and expertise to tackle the most challenging scientific questions underpinning health and disease. It will be world-class with a strong national role-training scientists and developing ideas for public good. Due to open in November 2015, The Crick will be located in a new, purpose built research centre in central London (Brill Place next to St. Pancras International) and will house some 1,250 researchers and 250 support staff.

In the Ralser lab we study the regulation and evolution of cellular metabolism, key research to understand physiological processes underlying cellular life and the development of age associated human disorders, including cancer and neurodegeneration. The position has been created for a motivated, early-career post-doctoral scientist to join an interdisciplinary team funded by the Crick, ERC, EMBO and the Wellcome Trust, to address how the metabolic network is regulated, and to identify mechanisms that maintain stability of the metabolic network. The project is about fundamental basic science underpinning health, and will involve a combination of functional genomics with mass spectrometry, and downstream analysis of the obtained data. The post is thus addressed to an Experimental Biochemist or Biologist who does not hesitate to expand his knowledge in mass spectrometry and the associated data analysis, or an Analytical Chemist who wants to extend his repertoire towards systematic functional approaches in the exciting new area of quantitative biology.
The Ralser lab is currently located at the Francis Crick Mill Laboratory and the University of Cambridge, and will move into the main Crick Bldg in April 2016. Please visit http://ralser.sysbiol.cam.ac.uk/ and http://www.crick.ac.uk/research/a-z-researchers/researchers-p-s/markus-ralser/
