This 3-year post is funded by the British Heart Foundation to study the molecular basis of regulation of contractility in the heart, using structural and mechanical measurements on isolated heart muscle cells. Dynamic changes in the structures of the contractile and regulatory proteins during the heartbeat will be characterized using X-ray diffraction measurements at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble, France). In addition to participating in those experiments, the successful candidate will contribute to the implementation of the experimental setup and the software tools for analysis of the X-ray data.
Deadline: 8 August 2019
