An opportunity is available for a Postdoctoral Scientist to join the group of Dr. Naomi McGovern at the Division of Immunology, Department of Pathology, Cambridge.
Our research seeks to understand the properties of human macrophage and dendritic cell populations in health and disease. We use a combination of techniques, including multi-parameter flow cytometry, CyTOF, single-RNA sequencing, confocal microscopy and cellular functional assays.
The project will involve the processing of human placental samples to isolate and characterise cells of interest, in particular macrophage populations. Your project will be focused on describing the response of placental cells to microbes that can cause congenital infection, such as Listeria monocytogenes and human cytomegalovirus.
We are looking for a motivated and skilled individual who will thrive in a highly collaborative and supportive research group.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 28 February 2022 in the first instance.
