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. The applicant will be based at Oxford University, but will work as part of a consortium funded through a U19 award in the USA. 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.
The post holder will be responsible for designing a range of new vaccines against hepatitis C and analysing the immunogenicity of these using a pre-clinical model, and performing functional and flow cytometry assays to understand their function. 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.
The post is fixed-term for up to 4 years in the first instance.
Applications for this vacancy should be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your application. The supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.
The closing date for this position is 12:00 on 02/12/2021.
