Research Fellow

University of Edinburgh - The Roslin Institute

A Post-doctoral fellowship is available in the laboratory of Prof. David Hume in collaboration with Prof. Ross Fitzgerald both based at The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh. The 4 year Wellcome Trust-funded project involves further collaboration with scientists in the University of Edinburgh and Glasgow investigating the molecular basis of Staphylococcus aureus host-adaptation informing the identification of novel therapeutic targets. The successful candidate will have a background in Immunology and will lead the analysis of S. aureus innate immune cell interactions to understand the basis for S. aureus host-tropism and the differential innate immune response of humans and livestock species. Importantly, the successful candidate will work closely with other scientists in the multi-disciplinary team working on genomics, bacterial genetics, and drug discovery to achieve the project objectives. The candidate will have a PhD (or near completion) in Immunology or Bacterial innate immune evasion. The Roslin Institute is a world-class centre for biomedical research of relevance to both animal and human health with a strong focus on infectious diseases and genomics. The Institute has state of the art research facilities for imaging, proteomics and high throughput sequencing and is an outstanding research environment.
