Much of our work focuses on neutrophils and their interaction with other immune cells. We study neutrophil biology at the biochemical, cell biological and organismal level. Our prior work identified mechanisms that enable neutrophils to drive atherosclerosis but also to distinguish between different pathogens and tune inflammation for efficient pathogen clearance
The project will involve a variety of techniques in the aforementioned areas to investigate novel roles for neutrophils in immunity and inflammation.
Postdoctoral Training Fellows are expected to lead their own projects, contribute to other projects on a collaborative basis (both in the lab and with external collaborators) and participate in training PhD students. The ability to work in a team is essential.
The post holder should embody and demonstrate our core Crick values: bold, imaginative, open and collegial, in addition to the following:
Excellent scientific written skills are necessary. The applicant should have already performed interesting and conceptually stimulating work that has resulted in a first author publication or in the process of being published.
This position is funded by the laboratory’s Crick core funding, and the applicant will be encouraged to apply for fellowships.
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
