The King’s College London (KCL) Cardiovascular Division is one of the largest Research Divisions within the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine and currently comprises 290 staff and students, including 50 Principal Investigators whose work is focused on the mechanisms and treatment of cardiovascular disease. We host a British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre of Research Excellence, established in 2008 and renewed in 2014.

The Division and BHF Centre provide an outstanding environment for the pursuit of cutting-edge research ( ), with excellent basic-clinical interaction and a strong focus on mentoring and career development. The Division was part of the KCL UoA1 for REF2014, being ranked first in the UK in the Guardian league tables and third in the Times Higher tables.

Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer in Proteomics/Bioinformatics in the Cardiovascular Division within the School of Life Sciences and Medicine at KCL.

The postholder will have a proven track record of internationally-recognised research in either proteomics or bioinformatics. We wish to appoint an individual with a track record of research productivity and expertise in cardiovascular proteomics or bioinformatics – as evidenced by well-cited original publications in high-impact journals – and potential to become a first class internationally-recognised leader in research. The post will be allied to a research group within the Division led by Prof. Manuel Mayr who has recently been awarded a Personal BHF Chair and will focus on applying –omics technologies to study cardiovascular diseases. The postholder will further develop their research programme within the group and Division, as well as collaborate with other PIs within the Division and the King’s BHF Centre of Research Excellence and more widely. The successful applicant will have a track record of PhD supervision, a strong background in proteomics or bioinformatics, and be an excellent team player. A contribution to undergraduate/postgraduate education will be part of the job, at an appropriate level as determined by the Head of Division. The job will be located at Denmark Hill campus.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cardiovascular Precision Medicine: New York City, NY, United States

We are seeking exceptional and highly motivated candidates at the rank of post-doctoral research fellow to work on projects related to our recent studies combining proteomics with microRNA measurements.

We offer a highly interesting, up to date research topic in an internationally renowned research environment, a new collaboration between the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai New York and King’s College London.

Professor Manuel Mayr’s group is at the forefront of microRNAs in cardiovascular disease and supported by a Leducq Transatlantic Network.

His group has the latest mass spectrometry equipment. The project will take advantage of proteomic approaches in combination with in vivo models and microRNA measurements in clinical samples to investigate the molecular cross-talk between organs and their contribution to atherosclerosis. For examples, see the following PubMed IDs: 26646931 26395742 25201911 25038053 2474314524011070 24006456 23956210 23283721 22813605 22327366 20651284


Candidates must have a PhD in Molecular Biology or a related field. Experience in proteomics is desirable. Experience in cardiovascular research is a distinct advantage.

The position is initially available for three years.

About us:

The Cardiovascular Research Center at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is an interdisciplinary research center focused on both basic and translational research. Particular strengths exist in gene therapy, tissue regeneration, exosome biology, electrophysiology and clinical research. Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is one of the leading Medical Schools in the US and has a strong graduate program in a variety of life sciences. The campus is located in Manhattan right next to Central Park.

Contract Type: Temporary/Fixed term
Contract Term:Full time
Closing date: 09 March 2017

The postholder will participate in the cardiovascular research project in line with the objectives defined in the project description(s) and with the overall objectives of the cardiovascular proteomics research group headed by Prof. Mayr. We are looking for an experienced and highly motivated researcher with a biomedical background who will pursue collaborative research with the members of the proteomics unit; providing predominantly expertise in molecular biology techniques, knowledge of cardiovascular diseases is desirable but not essential.

The cardiovascular proteomics research group has the latest mass spectrometry equipment at its disposal ( The project will take advantage of our unique proteomic datasets in combination with in vivo models and clinical samples to investigate the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. The ability to work under pressure with minimum supervision, whilst prioritising competing demands on time is an essential requirement.

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.
