The University of Manchester has two open Research Associate positions to work as part of an EPSRC-funded team in the “SPINS: Synthetic biology Pipeline for the Investigation of Novel Spidroins” project based in the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology.

One Research Associate position in Computational Biology for 18 months, with a closing date of 9th August 2023.

One Research Associate position in Synthetic Biology/Biochemistry for 30 months, with a closing date of 15 August 2023.

In addition, an opening for a Technician position working on the SPINS project will be advertised in the coming weeks.

The SPINS project is a collaboration between the University of Manchester and the University of Sheffield. The aim of the project is to enable rapid microbial production of novel, bespoke spider silks with predictable spinning properties, expanding the scope of viable applications of these versatile materials.

Informal enquiries should be made to Professor Rainer Breitling ( for the computational position and Eriko Takano ( for the synthetic biology and the technician positions.
