This involves small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. You will be tasked with adapting existing and developing new scientific techniques and experimental protocols as well as testing hypotheses and analysing scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate.

It is essential that you hold a relevant PhD/DPhil (or close to completion) in Molecular Biology/ Biochemistry/ Biology/ Chemistry or a related scientific subject. You will have experience in epitranscriptomics or RNA biology and experience of actively collaborating in the development of research articles for publication, in a relevant subject (such as epitranscriptomics or RNA biology). You will also have a strong skill set in standard Molecular Biology/Biochemistry/Cell Biology techniques and experience of communicating results clearly and logically as part of a diverse research team.
