Current vacancies

  • Post Doctoral Research Fellow (Reproductive Endocrinology and Metabolism)

    Ref: HY0056
    • Reference: HY0056
    • Main location: Hull
    • Salary: £32,277 to £37,394
    • Closing date: 05 December 2014

    The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research is seeking to appoint an postdoctoral research fellow to investigate the impact of endocrine parameters on the metabolic profile of the oviduct secretome. The research will be overseen by Dr Roger Sturmey, whose broad aim revolves around understanding the fundamental metabolic events that occur during early embryo development both in health and disease.

    The successful applicant will utilise an in vitro model of the oviduct epithelium which has been established in animal models. An important milestone of this project is to extend the model and apply the techniques to human tissue. Subsequently we will assess the quality of embryos cultured in this in vitro derived oviduct fluid.

    The HYMS Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research has outstanding laboratory facilities and core services, including confocal microscopy and mass-spectrometry. These factors combine to provide a supportive environment in which to pursue basic, translational and clinical research programmes.

    Applicants will be expected to have obtained - or be nearing submission of - a PhD in a relevant subject area. A background in biochemistry is essential with an additional knowledge of biomedical engineering being highly desirable. The successful applicant will have experience working across different disciplines, and a deep knowledge of both human and bovine reproductive endocrinology - in addition to practical experience with primary cell culture, qPCR, HPLC, Western Blotting, and FACS. Applicants must be readily available to drive to allow for essential occasional visits to collect tissue.

    To informally discuss this role, please contact Dr Roger Sturmey (roger.sturmey@hyms.ac.uk, Tel 01482466422).

    This post is full time, fixed term for three years.

    The University of Hull has recently announced a substantial investment to enable a step change in the University’s research and enterprise performance, in line with its strategic ambition.  The investment includes the establishment of an Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research.  This post is one of the first appointments to be made to this Institute, which will be housed within a new build on our health campus (due for completion end of 2016).  As part of this investment we plan to significantly expand our clinical and applied population health and health services research, focusing more on large studies aimed at understanding and improving health and health care in the local population. 

    The post will be based initially within the Supportive care, Early Diagnosis and Advanced disease (SEDA) research group which is part of the academic Centre for Health and Population Sciences and is based on the University of Hull campus.  The overall aim of research in SEDA is to apply rigorous health service research methods to understanding issues related to cancer diagnosis, supportive care, advanced disease and end of life issues. 

    The purpose of this research fellow post is to develop research funding applications and support the set-up of newly funded projects.  The postholder will work closely with Professor Una Macleod, Professor of Primary Care Medicine to develop funding applications and to support projects post funding awards.  It is envisaged this post may provide the opportunity and stepping stone for an experienced post doctoral researcher to become an independent researcher.  The postholder will also provide some research and evaluation support for the new Academy of Primary Care, which is being established to support and develop the health of our local communities and support the development of the primary care workforce across the region, particularly within its most challenged and under staffed areas.  This is being undertaken in partnership with the local NHS. 

    You will be educated to post-doctoral (Band 7) level - or have equivalent professional experience.  You will have expertise in the theory and application of health service research methodologies.

    This post is full time and is available at either Senior Lecturer (Band 9) or Lecturer (Band 8) dependent on experience.  

    The University of Hull has recently announced a substantial investment to enable a step change in the University’s research and enterprise performance, in line with its strategic ambition.  The investment includes the establishment of an Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research.  This post is one of the first appointments to be made to this Institute, which will be housed within a new build on our health campus (due for completion end of 2016).  As part of this investment we plan to significantly expand our clinical and applied population health and health services research, focusing more on large studies aimed at understanding and improving health and health care in the local population. 

    Our current research includes work on understanding inequalities for cancer patients at diagnosis and towards the end of life, and work on exploring the ways in which the new NHS structures are able to address inequalities.  This is an area of particular relevance for our local population and so we plan to expand it.  The local population is stable and there are therefore significant opportunities to develop population based studies to understand the best mechanisms for health care which would have an impact in reducing inequalities.  We would welcome interest in this post from those with an interest in understanding the social determinants of health, in studying the variation in health services and outcomes, or in developing health related interventions to reduce health inequalities. 

    The post will be based within the Supportive care, Early Diagnosis and Advanced disease (SEDA) research group which is part of the HYMS Academic Centre for Health and Population Sciences and is based on the University of Hull campus.  The overall aim of research in SEDA is to apply rigorous health service research methods to understanding issues related to cancer diagnosis, supportive care, advanced disease and end of life issues.  We work very closely with colleagues in the Department of Health Sciences in York where the York based staff of Centre for Health and Population Sciences are embedded.
