Applications for a postdoctoral research associate/assistant are invited to work with Dr. Stephen Tait to investigate mitochondrial functions in cancer. Our group is interested in understanding how mitochondrial regulation of processes including cell death, senescence and inflammation contributes to cancer (see Molecular Cell, 57:862; Autophagy, 10:2269; Cell Reports, 5:878, British Journal of Cancer, 112:957). This Cancer Research UK funded research will utilise a variety of novel and established approaches including live-cell imaging and in vivo reporter models.

Our lab is situated at the Beatson Institute in Glasgow – one of Europe’s leading cancer research centres. It is core funded by Cancer Research UK and supports cutting edge research into the molecular mechanisms of cancer development. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies with special emphasis on imaging and proteomics.

A relevant PhD is desirable (essential for appointment at grade 7) and experience in cell biology/biochemistry, in vivo biology and/or live cell imaging would be an advantage.

Informal inquiries should be directed to Dr. Tait (
