Wash Up Facility
A technical assistant is required to work in the Wash Up Facility within the College of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee.
This facility supports the varied research undertaken in the College and the requirements of the post includes the routine collection of glassware to be washed and sterilized, collection and processing of waste from the research labs and cleaning and maintenance of tissue culture suites.
Autoclaves, sterilizing ovens and glass washers are used in the post and full training will be given.
The University is seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and professional individual to provide Maternity Cover for the Division Secretary for the Division of Cell & Developmental Biology within the School of Research at the College of Life Sciences.
Applications are invited from individuals interested in joining a small team caring for animals. A responsible and caring attitude to animal welfare will therefore be essential. You will have experience in all aspects of husbandry including the breeding and maintenance of transgenic rodents. You will have the ability to work as part of a team but also to assist the facility manager in the day-to-day running of the unit and to act as their deputy in their absence.
The overarching theme of the Division is "the discovery of chemical solutions to biological problems" through excellence in basic and applied multidisciplinary research.
Researchers in this Division investigate the mechanisms of differentiation in developing organisms, stem cells and adult tissues and how these are corrupted in disease states.
The Centre for Gene Regulation and Expression (GRE) was created within the University of Dundee School of Life Sciences in January 2008. Our aim is to build and enhance GRE as a world leading research centre studying the cell biology of gene expression and chromosome biology.
The work of the group centres on the structural, dynamic and chemical properties of nucleic acids, and their recognition by and interactions with proteins. Nucleic acids perform many roles in the cell. They act as the store of genetic information (DNA), the genetic messenger and template for the synthesis of proteins (mRNA), the processing of mature spliced RNA (snRNA) and precisely processed RNA (snoRNA), as an enzyme (ribozymes, including peptidyl transferase activity of the ribosome) and even in the control of gene expression (miRNA species, and riboswitches).
The MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit (PPU) is a major research centre that focuses on the understanding of the biological roles of phosphorylation and ubiquitylation and how disruption of these processes cause human diseases such as neurodegeneration, cancer, hypertension and immune disorders.
Plants form the basis of life on Earth providing food to sustain human and animal life, as well as being exploited for natural products and medicine. They are essential to the atmosphere in fixing carbon and releasing oxygen. The importance of plant sciences to the world’s ecosystems is highlighted by the current concerns over climate change and fuel and food security.
