Applicants are invited for the post of Research Associate to work in the laboratories of Prof. Graham Lord and Prof. Mark Travis at the University of Manchester. The post funds a position as part of a collaborative project, funded by the Helmsley Trust, to identify how novel treatments for Crohn’s Disease act in humans. Specifically, patient samples from individuals before and after receiving regulatory T cells, a special type of suppressive immune cell, will be analysed using extensive multiomic techniques (both single cell and spatial technologies) to determine Treg-mediated effects, and how this correlates with clinical outcome in the patient.
The main roles of the successful applicant will be planning of research and coordination of samples with clinicians and others involved in the trial, and to drive and conduct experimental multi-omic analysis of samples, in collaboration with bioinformaticians. The successful applicant will have a PhD or equivalent in Immunology or a related discipline, and a good knowledge of immunology, single cell and multiomic -focussed laboratory research. They should also have good data curation skills, and good communication skills.
