I’ll be moving to the University of Liverpool in November 2019 to set up my own lab using and developing proteomic methods to study virus replication as part of the Centre for Proteome Research, Department of Biochemistry.
I am currently a Postdoc in Nikolai Slavov’s lab, part of the Department of Bioengineering and the Barnett Institute for Chemical and Biological Analysis at Northeastern University. My postdoctoral research with Nikolai involves the study of ribosome heterogeneity and the immune response, as well as the development and application of single cell proteomic methods (SCoPE-MS/SCoPE2). I moved to the Slavov lab in October 2017.
Prior to joining Nikolai’s lab, I was a postdoc in Ian Goodfellow’s lab in the Department of Pathology at the University of Cambridge and Imperial College London where I studied norovirus replication and virus-host interactions, becoming particularly interested in the role of the viral protease, and polyprotein processing.
My PhD was at the University of Leeds under the supervision of Julian Hiscox with my thesis on ‘High-throughput proteomic analysis of the interactions of avian coronavirus and its nucleocapsid with the host cell’. My Bachelors was from the University of Warwick in Medical Microbiology & Virology where my undergraduate research on Adenovirus interactions with PML bodies was supervised by Keith Leppard.
Join the team!
For the moment, there are no current funded positions available in the lab.
If you have access to, or wish to pursue alternate sources of funding for PhD or postdoctoral positions in the lab, please contact Ed with a copy of your CV, and a description of your research interests and how these can fit with research in the lab. Details on the application process for international students with access to funding who wish to pursue PhD study can be found here. A great source of potential fellowship schemes for interested applicants can be found at ECRcentral.
