Post-doctoral Research Fellowship (Full-time 1yr or Part-time, 50%, 2yr): database development

This post is an important part of a project in the University's Synthetic Biology Research Centre, and will forge a new link between synthetic biology and pharmacology. Located in Prof Jamie Davies' lab (George Square site), the post-holder will work on a project to create a new section of the database, to highlight drug-responsive elements of proteins that might be added to other proteins to confer synthetic drug control.

The database development position will extend the existing database to include sections on protein motifs that could, in principle, be built into engineered proteins to make those proteins targets of known drugs. The data will be used by the holder of a related 'lab work' position, to build one example protein engineered to be a target of a specific drug, as a wet-lab proof of concept. The holder of this database developer post, and the holder of that lab work position, will need to work together.

The post requires a degree in biological or biomedical sciences and a postgraduate qualification in bioinformatics, with knowledge of programming languages including Java, JavaScript, HTML and CSS, and experience using relational databases and writing SQL queries.

Educated to PhD level or equivalent experience is required.
