We are currently recruiting for a Postdoctoral scientist in Immunology reporting to Professor Ellie Barnes and Paul Klenerman. The post holder will be a member of a research group with responsibility for carrying out research in vaccines – focusing on new vaccines against hepatitis C.

This will give the applicants access to experts in viral and vaccine immunology (both T cell and humoral) who are internationally renown in the field.

There will be opportunities to explore other vaccines, different vaccine platforms and potentially some clinical trial samples for comparison. The successful applicant may also have the opportunity to work on related vaccines in people with chronic infectious disease or on immune suppressive therapy (HBV and SARS-CoV-2).
 
To be considered for this position you should have a DPhil/PhD or equivalent in the field of Immunology. You should have a track record of expertise in designing and carrying out studies of T cells in pre-clinical in vivo models, including functional assays such as ELISpot but also with expertise in flow cytometry.
