The Department of Inflammation Biology seeks to recruit a Group Leader (at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level) to lead and develop an independent, interdisciplinary research programme relevant to the academic activities of the Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology. The successful candidate will drive cutting-edge research across the different disciplines of inflammation biology, cancer immunology and/or neuroinflammation to further enhance King’s position as an international leader in research, training and education.
The post will be based in the Centre for Inflammation Biology & Cancer Immunology (CIBCI), Department of Inflammation Biology, School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences, on the Guy’s Campus of King’s College London. CIBCI offers a 1200m2 footprint for collaborative and interactive research and training environment, including open wet laboratory space, adjacent cell culture rooms, flow cytometry facilities, fly and rodent holding suites and an imaging suite. The Centre also features a large open plan office adjacent to dedicated PI offices.
CIBCI’s interdisciplinary programme brings together academics, clinicians, research scientists and trainees to work on clinically relevant cellular and molecular mechanisms of inflammation and tumour immunobiology, with an intent to expand our activities and visibility in the field of neuroinflammation. This creates a stimulating environment to develop, investigate and apply cutting-edge models and techniques, both experimental and computational, to advance the understanding of human inflammatory disease and cancer. Our projects include studies on innate and adaptive immune cell function; immune signalling; immunometabolism; wound healing; antigen processing and presentation; and neuro-immune interactions.
As an independent investigator within CIBCI, the successful candidate will be expected to set up and lead an independent research programme with supervision of wet and/or dry lab junior investigators and to submit internationally competitive grant applications and scientific papers as PI or co-PI. In addition, the post holder will be expected to contribute enthusiastically to UGT, PGT and PGR teaching, training and educational leadership in their area of expertise in line with the Department, SIMS and King’s educational activities.
This post will be offered on an indefinite contract.
This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent.
