About the Role
Applications are sought for an experienced Post Doc who will lead a new gastro-oesophageal cancer research study. The project aims to develop more effective immunotherapy combinations using patient-derived organoid (PDO) and T cell co-culture models, and to identify MHC presented T cell antigens by mass-spectrometry immunopeptidomics. The appointee will furthermore support the expansion of our living biobank of PDOs and immune cells and lead the development of novel functional immunology assays.
The ideal candidate has extensive experience of human tissue culture, preferably including PDO culture or cellular immunology assays. First author publications are essential to demonstrate experience in taking a project to publication. Experience in the analysis of large-scale datasets or bioinformatics would be desirable. Good organisation, record keeping and communication skills are essential. The candidate will have a PhD in biology, immunology or a related relevant subject.
