Junior Research Fellow | Biopharming Research Unit

The Biopharming Research Unit (BRU) in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Cape Town has been awarded a Junior Research Fellowship grant for three years. We invite applications for this fixed term three-year contract post available from 1st March 2020.
The BRU in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology is a University-based research unit that is student-centred and develops early-stage “biologics” or protein-based pharmaceuticals, mainly made in plants. The focus of the Unit is on the development of candidate vaccines and diagnostics for animal and human health. We have wide collaborations with national and international scientists and we are a feeder for industry. The Junior Research Fellow will be able to run their own research projects and is expected to apply for their own grant funding as well.
Closing date: 17 January 2020
