Advanced Research Assistant - Malaria drug target discovery

We are seeking a highly motivated and flexible Advanced Research Assistant to join the Lee and PlasmoGEM (Plasmodium Genetic Modification) team. You will work on projects that aim to identify new antimalarial drug targets for different stages of the parasite lifecycle, and to associate these potential targets with chemical inhibitors.  

A major focus of the work will be to use a library of overexpression vectors to find new liver-stage targets, which will involve the culture and infection of hepatocytes with P. berghei parasites dissected from mosquitoes, followed by screening with novel compounds. Other aspects of the work may involve CRISPR editing of P. falciparum parasites and in vitro drug assays. The most challenging aspect of this role will be to organise the various stages of the projects and ensure tasks are carried out reliably in order to independently generate and document high quality data and reagents. Hence, good organisational skills and the ability to perform and track a variety of challenging workflows from project start to delivery is essential. Past experience in working with rodents or mosquitoes would be advantageous. The successful candidate must be able to work as part of a team and also have the ability to independently handle complex workflows from project start to delivery. Good communication, attention to detail and record keeping skills are a key part of the role. 

Some weekend work is anticipated.

PlasmoGEM (Plasmodium Genetic Modification) develops and performs large-scale genetic screens in Plasmodiumspecies to uncover new parasite biology and identify possible therapeutic targets. We work across multiple Plasmodium species, including Plasmodium falciparum, P. berghei and P. knowlesi to maximise the advantages of each system.

To be considered for this excellent opportunity, please submit your Application Form (mandatory), CV (mandatory) and Cover Letter (preferred) today.
