The Research Fellow will be of postdoctoral status and will be associated with the Glaxo Institute of Applied Pharmacology. The chosen candidate is likely to have a strong background in either molecular biology, electrophysiology, or G-protein receptor transduction mechanisms. The Research Fellow will be a University employee on a salary of between £18,000 and £25,000 a year, and will receive the full privileges associated with a Fellowship at Magdalene College. Financial help with private accommodation will be provided and the Research Fellow is eligible to join the University superannuation scheme.

The Fellowship has a flexible starting date to suit the successful candidate. Completed application forms, together with a full curriculum vitae and the names of two academic referees, must be received not later than 1 May 1998. A brief statement outlining work which the candidate would wish to submit in support of his or her application and the research which the candidate proposes, if elected, will be required at the same time.

Application forms and further details can be obtained from Professor P. P. A. Humphrey, Glaxo Institute of Applied Pharmacology, Tennis Court Road, Cambridge, CB2 1QJ (tel. 334078, fax 334178, e-mail ppah0562@ggr.co.uk).
