The successful applicant needs to be in post from 2nd July 2018 and the opportunity is for a fixed-term period of 2 years.

Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work on a project designed to investigate the phenotype and specificity of immune cells infiltrating the pancreas of patients with Type 1 diabetes. The project is funded by JDRF for two years and is a collaboration with colleagues at the University of Exeter. The Research Fellow in Lincoln will use molecular approaches to determine the characteristics of immune cells involved in the destruction of insulin-secreting cells causing disease. The successful candidate will join a group with an international reputation in Type 1 diabetes research located at the University of Lincoln. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in immunology, biochemistry, biomedical sciences, or a related area, and experience in molecular biology techniques would be an advantage.
