Research Associate

Imperial College London - Complement and Inflammation Research/Immunology and Inflammation/Medicine

Campus: Hammersmith Campus

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Associate position, funded by the Wellcome Trust, within the Centre for Complement and Inflammation Research (CCIR), in the Department of Medicine.

The work is a close collaboration between two laboratories with key interests in autoimmunity (Professor Marina Botto) and tissue immune surveillance (Dr Jessica Strid). The candidate will work closely with colleagues in both groups and will benefit from a wide range of on site expertise. The post offers a unique opportunity to explore the role of NKG2D, a natural-killer receptor, in autoimmunity using in vivo models of systemic lupus erythematosus.

Candidates should hold a PhD or equivalent in Immunology or a closely related discipline. Experience in basic immunology and in vivo models is desirable. Practical experience in core immunology techniques such as flow cytometry, PCR, cell culture and ELISA is essential.

The post is full-time, fixed-term until 28 February 2021.

For informal enquiries about the post, please contact Ms Claudia Rocchi at

Interview date: 12 February 2018
