About the Role
We are looking for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to join us in the Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology (CIBCI).
We are undertaking work within two groups who are working on a number of projects relating to antigen presentation and T cell response in cancer and inflammation with the aim to further characterise the underlying molecular mechanisms and identify potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets.
If successful, the key areas of work that you will focus on include. The focus of the post will be to carry out a project on:
The successful candidate will have opportunities to interact with national and international collaborators with a broad expertise, which varies from computational biology to clinics, as well as Mishto lab at the Francis Crick Institute (London, UK).
This is a research support post in the Mishto lab within the Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology (CIBCI) at the Guy’s campus of King’s College London. This post is also shared with Kordasti lab at the Comprehensive Cancer Centre at the Guy’s campus of King’s College London and could include experiments carried out at the Francis Crick Institute in Mishto lab.
The centre is focusing on research that aspires to advance the fundamental and applied knowledge of the biology, diagnosis and treatment of inflammation, its associated pathologies, and its bearing on tumour immunobiology. Our collective aim is to identify key mechanisms and pathways underlying inflammation and cancer and to create opportunities for novel treatments for human disease.
If this area of research sounds of interest, we would be interested in hearing from you.
Our ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate how they meet the following criteria:
