Postdoctoral Scientist

£28,100 - £34,430
Applications Close: 7 August 2014

Recent experimental research has generated fundamental insight into the biology of the gastrointestinal tract, which is essential for long-term gut health. However, it has also revealed important questions concerning the mechanisms of regulation of the small intestinal epithelium in crypts and villi. The purpose of this job is to formulate testable hypothesis and carry out the experimental work required to identify the mechanisms that regulate homeostasis in the healthy intestinal epithelium and those that restore equilibrium after perturbations.
