A Research Technician's position is available, funded by a European Research Council Starting Grant to Dr Laura McCoy, in UCL's Division of Infection and Immunity (Bloomsbury Campus, Cruciform Building). Work within the Division of Infection and Immunity aims to translate advances in the understanding of pathogens and the immune system into improved diagnosis and therapy. Dr McCoy's group aims to understand the fundamental regulation of the humoral immune response during chronic HIV infection and the development of anti-viral antibodies.
