Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher in antibody discovery to join the Aprile group at the Department of Chemistry of Imperial College London.
Antibodies are powerful biomolecules, which find a wide application in research and clinic. The research of the Aprile group is focused on the development of antibody-based tools to study neurodegeneration. In particular, the Aprile group is interested in developing and using antibodies to understand the mechanisms of formation and toxicity of pathological protein aggregates called amyloids.
Duties and responsibilities
You will play a key role in the development of novel directed evolution technologies to generate antibodies as inhibitors of amyloid aggregation. You will also produce these antibodies (using cloning, expression, and purification techniques) and characterise their binding and stabilities.
Contract: 1-year fixed term initially, with possible extension of up to 1 year.
Should you require any further details on the role please contact: Francesco Aprile, firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477- £38,566 per annum
