|Research Fellow in Immunology
|Date Posted||Thursday, 27 September 2012|
|Location||Imperial College London/University of Manchester|
Imperial College London/University of Manchester
Sir Alexander Fleming Building
London, SW7 2AZ
|Job Description||A Research Associate (Research Fellowship in Immune Cell Biology) position is available as soon as possible, for up to 24 months, sponsored by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). This is an exciting opportunity to join a multidisciplinary team using novel and state-of-the-art microscopy for studying immune cell biology. The project involves using new fluorescence microscope technologies to study fundamental properties of T cell and/or Natural Killer cell immune synapses with a view to applying this knowledge to the design of drugs or therapeutic antibodies.
The successful candidate will be based in Professor Dan Davis’s laboratory in Imperial College London, up to 31 March 2013. The group then relocates from 1 April 2013 to the University of Manchester; specifically the Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research, a new Centre funded by the University of Manchester and pharmaceutical companies, where Prof. Davis will be the Director of Research. It may be possible to move sooner if desired.
|Qualification||You should have a PhD, preferably in Biology or a related biomedical science, Immunology, Physics, or equivalent level of professional qualifications and experience. You must have relevant laboratory experience in fluorescence imaging and/or cell or molecular biology, and proven evidence of an ability to carry out important science is essential. Knowledge of advanced microscopy, creating constructs for expression of proteins in cell lines, assays of immune cell function techniques and basic immunology are desirable.
