Postdoctoral position Optical Imaging, Imperial College London, UK

We are seeking an outstanding Research Associate in Optical Imaging to contribute to a Leverhulme Trust funded project across the Aprile, Kuimova and Vilar groups in the Department of Chemistry based on the development of molecular rotors to study aggregation and liquid liquid phase separation (LLPS) of alpha-synuclein, a key protein in Parkinson’s disease.

The project is funded for a period of two years, with a possible six months’ extension. The start date is from 1st July 2024 with some flexibility. This project will involve the development of reliable assays for the characterisation of the in vitro and in cellulo aggregation and LLPS of protein alpha-synuclein, using fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM).

Deadline 9th May 2024
