Pilizota and Waclaw labs at the University of Edinburgh seek a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to undertake research in.
Long-term infectious and inflammatory conditions, such as chronic rhinosinusitis, are a complex host-pathogen response that is often poorly understood because of the multi-scale nature of the interactions, and numerous physical and biological factors that are involved. This is an opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team of researchers located at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Cambridge to build new experimental and conceptual frameworks required to gain a predictive understanding of such complex systems. You will have the opportunity to build a “system” that will replicate the main features of chronic rhinosinusitis in a microfluidic device suitable for microscopy imaging by focusing on the anatomy of the host sinus cavity. You will also interact with other members of the team working on theoretical and computational approaches needed to both interpret experiments and extrapolate the findings. The success of this project can pave the way for an interdisciplinary understanding of one of the most important interactions in all of biology.
