You should have an Honours degree in a biological subject and a higher degree (PhD) in a related subject with experience in epithelial cell physiology. Proficiency in lung epithelial cell culture would be a distinct advantage. Prior experience in protein analysis, immunocytochemistry and confocal microscopy would also be encouraged.
