University of Oxford (in conjunction with St Cross College)


St Cross College proposes to make an election to this Junior Research Fellowship, tenable from 1 October 2004 (or another date by agreement), for one year. The Fellowship is to be held in conjunction with a position in the Department of Ophthalmology, involving research work in the general area of post-translational modifications to proteins relevant to cataract and other age-related conformational diseases. Experience in protein chemistry, especially of 2D gel electrophoresis, would be useful. The Fellowship will be suitable for graduates in biochemistry or a related subject. The Fellowship is open to men and women and carries a stipend of £19,459 a year, together with common table rights (five lunches a week).

Applicants should have submitted their doctoral dissertations by the date of taking up the appointment or have obtained the D.Phil./Ph.D. or equivalent within the last five years, but the College will exercise flexibility in the case of applicants whose academic careers have been interrupted.

Applications (marked Knoop JRF) should include a full curriculum vitae and the names of two referees, and should be addressed to the Master, St Cross College, Oxford, OX1 3LZ. The closing date for applications is 19 July. Applicants should ask their referees to send references direct to the Master by that date. It is expected that interviews will be held on 17 August. Further details about scientific aspects can be obtained from Professor John J. Harding, Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Walton Street, Oxford, OX2 6AW (tel. 01865 248996, e-mail john.harding@eye.ox.ac.uk).

The University of Oxford and St Cross College are equal opportunities employers.
