Postdoc at the University of Glasgow
This position is part of a project entitled "Environmental Stressors, Senescence and Lifespan: Does telomere loss provide the link?" funded by an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The overall aim of the project is to experimentally investigate both the direct and intergenerational effects of environmentally generated stress on telomere dynamics, using the zebra finch.
The holder of this position will be the main person in charge of running laboratory analyses designed to measure stress responses. The position has become available due to the appointment of the existing postholder to a tenure track position in a US University. The person appointed will be part of a team funded by this ERC grant, and so will work closely with another postdoctoral scientist who will be in charge of the telomere work, and a full time technician and other specialist (data analysis) and support staff who assist with running the experiments and the laboratory assays.
