Contract Type: Fixed-term (12 Months)
A Research Fellow or Research Assistant position is available in the laboratory of Professor Felicity Gavins for 12-months (with the possibility of extending). We are looking for a committed, and driven researcher interested in studying immune cell functions in inflammation.
This is an exciting opportunity to investigate innate immune responses in-vivo and in-vitro using and further developing an array of novel cutting-edge models. The successful applicant will join a collaborative, and supportive lab with extensive expertise in studying immune responses and appropriate technical support. For more information, visit our website: www.Gavins-lab.com.
Selected publications from Gavins’ lab:
1) Regulating Neutrophil PAD4/NOX-Dependent Ceerebrovascular Thromboinflammation. Ansari J et al., Int J Biol Sci. 2023;19:852-864.
2) Targeting the AnA1/Fpr2/ALX pathway regulates neutrophil function, promoting thromboinflammation resolution in sickle cell disease. Ansari J et al., Blood. 2021;137:1538-1549.
3) Novel Role for the AnxA1-Fpr2/ALX Signaling Axis as a Key Regulator of Platelet Function to Promote Resolution of Inflammation. Senchenkova EYet al., Circulation. 2019;140:319-335.
4) Fpr2/ALX Regulates Neutrophil-Platelet Aggregation and Attenuates Cerebral Inflammation. Impact For Therapy in Cardiovascular Disease. Vital S et al., Circulation, 2016;133:2169-2179.
Applicants should have a First degree in Biological Sciences and a PhD (or close to completion, or equivalent experience) in e.g. immunology/pharmacology/vascular biology or related discipline. PhD students with appropriate skills and currently writing up are encouraged to apply.
This Royal Society and Wolfson Foundation-affiliated position aims to investigate immune cell involvement in inflammation-related pathologies. Applicants must have experience with in-vivo work, and working with multi-colour flow cytometry and immunofluorescence is highly desirable. Some bioinformatics experience for analysing e.g. scRNA-seq data would be useful.
