Employed by: The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), based at 123 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2


The Irish Personalized Approach to the Treatment of Haemophilia (iPATH) program is a large translational research programme that seeks to make fundamental discoveries in relation to haemophilia biology, thereby enabling novel approaches to patient stratification and ultimately personalized management of haemophilia and haemophilic arthropathy. iPATH is funded through a Science Foundation Ireland Strategic Partnership award. Other partners include the Irish Haemophilia Society, Shire, St James' Hospital and Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin. In addition to the clinical collaborators, iPATH will involve a number of different research groups in both Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).



We currently seek an outstanding postdoctoral researcher to join the iPATH programme. The successful applicant will work in Dr. Roger Preston's research group and will utilize state-of-the-art in vitro and in vivo approaches to decipher the poorly understood biology underlying bleeding tendency and arthropathy development in haemophilia A patients. The successful applicant will work closely with collaborating academic, clinical and industrial partners in the iPATH programme. The position is funded for 4 years.



Person Specification


Applicants should have a PhD in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry/Genetics or related biological subject. Experience in the area of haemostasis, immunology, vascular biology would be advantageous, but not essential. Applicants with experience of current molecular biology techniques, protein biochemistry and mouse models are particularly encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate would be self-motivated, creative and highly competent, as evidenced by first author publications in recognized journals.
