We are seeking a highly motivated early-career scientist with skills and expertise in cellular immunology. The post holder will work with Dr Thushan de Silva (Wellcome Trust Intermediate Fellow) and Professor Sarah Rowland-Jones (Florey Professor of Infection and Immunity) in immunological studies looking at immune responses to infections and vaccines, with a particular focus on pathogens of global health importance (including HIV, CMV and influenza A). You must hold a PhD (or be close to completion) in immunology (or have equivalent experience). The successful candidate will also have an excellent academic track record and considerable experience of immunological techniques, including functional assays and multiparameter flow cytometry: they will develop their own projects as well as provide training and guidance to students and visitors (including from amongst our overseas collaborators) in the laboratory. There would also be opportunities to spend short visits with our collaborators overseas.
This is a fixed term role available until 31 July 2022.
