The Gwyer Findlay lab investigates how neutrophils affect T cell phenotype. Our work sits at the interface of immunology and inflammation biology and we use a variety of methods in our studies – immunology, molecular biology, computational biology and imaging.
In this project we are aiming to understand how neutrophils alter T cell cytokine production. We have previously shown that when neutrophils release antimicrobial peptides, they enter nearby T cells and profoundly alter T cell cytokine production. In particular, they affect the production of the IL-17 family of cytokines. In this project we will work out how this occurs. Through culture of mouse and human T cells, flow cytometry, RNA and ATAC sequencing and imaging, we will examine the signalling pathways induced by neutrophil peptides and how they lead to differential IL-17 production.
You will hold a PhD in immunology, biology, or a related discipline. Highly organised and driven, you will demonstrate initiative and problem-solving skills. You will have experience in and knowledge of T cell immunology, cell culture, and flow cytometry.
Applications will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon completion of PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
