Post Doctoral Research Associate

John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre - Newcastle University

We are looking for an experienced researcher to work on projects aimed at characterising tissue and circulating biomarkers in genetic muscle diseases.

In these projects, we will use a variety of new technologies to study muscle biopsies of patients with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) and other muscle disorders, and to detect circulating biomarkers in patients’ plasma and serum. The final aim is to identify the key molecular pathways that are dysregulated in FSHD and other myopathies and to confirm them in vitro in cellular models of the disease. You will work in the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre, a centre for translational research in genetic neuromuscular diseases with around 90 team members.
