All of the jobs are fairly flexible in terms of large animal: small animal split (depending on the candidates and clinical requirements) and there is scope for interest in either a clinical or research position.

We have 2 great hospitals, a great team, an excellent diploma training programme and it is a lovely area to live in. Please do not hesitate to contact Briony Alderson on [email protected] or Mark Senior at [email protected] for any more information on any of the jobs.

This is a 3 year fixed term post.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position to work on a Arthritis Research UK-funded project entitled – Semaphorin 3A/new target for controlling joint pain?

The Project: Around 10 million people in the UK are affected by joint pain, osteoarthritis (OA) representing the most frequent condition. The project will test the hypothesis that a reduction of semaphorin-3A (sema-3A) expression during joint degeneration leads to uncontrolled local nerve ingrowth and joint pain. The aims of this project are to: (1) determine if chondrocyte-derived sema-3A blocks neurite outgrowth from explants of sensory neurons in vitro, (2) establish if sema-3A plays a role in the development of joint pain using 2 mouse models of OA and genetically modified mice which have no sema-3A in chondrocytes, and (3) determine whether mechanical loading, though physiological exercise or directly applied to the joint, promotes sema-3A expression in the joint to prevent nerve growth and joint pain.

These experiments will determine whether sema-3A could be used as a new strategy for the treatment of joint pain.

The Successful Candidate: We are seeking a highly motivated researcher with a PhD in biological or biomedical science, high quality publications in peer reviewed international journals. An experience in pain behaviours measurements in rodents and/or mouse models of osteoarthritis would be an advantage.

The Setting: The successful candidate will join a collaborative group of researchers in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences Department of the Royal Veterinary College (RVC). The RVC is located in central London with a strong research environment and excellent facilities.  It also benefits from its closeness to other institutions nearby, allowing for interactions and collaborations with a large number of research programmes

Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Chantal Chenu (email:[email protected]; tel: +44 (0) 207468 5045).

c. £32,402 per annum inclusive
