Job Ref: 1814715

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £35,965 - £43,470 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

The Bennett lab, located within the Institute of Immunity and Transplantation at the UCL Cancer Institute, bridges the divisions of Cancer, and Infection and Immunity at UCL. This intersection between world-leading cancer biologists, immunologists and immunotherapists provides an exciting and stimulating working environment. 

Our work is focused on gaining a greater understanding of dendritic cell (DC) development and function within healthy and diseased tissues and how this knowledge may be exploited for therapeutic purposes. 

A new opportunity has become available for a motivated and committed Research Fellow to join the research team led by Dr Clare Bennett on a project to understand the cross-talk between dendritic cells (DC) and T cells in tumours and how this cross-talk may be enhanced to promote tumour rejection in the context of immunotherapy.  

The role will involve use of real-time imaging of cellular interactions in tumours, with other pre-clinical models to manipulate and study DC function in vivo to fulfill the above aim. We will combine the use of state-of the-art microscopy with flow cytometry, with the potential to translate findings into patient samples.   

This position is funded for 36 months in the first instance with the possibility for extension.

Applicants will have, or be studying towards a PhD, or possess equivalent experience and be committed to an independent career in research. 

Significant experience in immunology laboratory research as well as experience with in vivo models of immunology and/or tumour biology is essential. 

Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD: if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £31,479-£33,194 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
