Fully-funded PhD studentships at Nottiangham Trent University, UK

Postdoctoral Research Associate: Camden: An exciting opportunity is available within the Skeletal Biology Group at the Comparative Biomedical Sciences department. The successful candidate will collaborate with experts in cellular senescence at the RVC and University of Brighton on an innovative project titled “The role of cell senescence in the age-related dysregulation of proteostasis in tendon.” This project aims to establish the link between cell senescence and protein turnover in tendon. If you are a highly motivated researcher with a background in cell biology, this is a unique chance to contribute to cutting-edge research.

Designation: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Research Area: Cellular Senescence and Tendon Biology

Location: Camden (King’s Cross, London)
