Since 2017, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Global Health Research Unit on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) at BSMS has undertaken multidisciplinary research on three NTDs (scabies, mycetoma and podoconiosis) in Ethiopia, Sudan and Rwanda.

We wish to recruit a post-doctoral research scientist (maternity cover) to join a team investigating the immunological basis of podoconiosis, a non-communicable cause of swollen legs (lymphoedema) in barefooted individuals who are chronically exposed to volcanic red soil in endemic regions. An unknown soil component triggers HLA-associated inflammation in genetically susceptible individuals - In this exciting role you will help advance our understanding of the immunological basis of podoconiosis, working closely with colleagues in Ethiopia, Rwanda and the UK.

You will have:

  • a PhD or equivalent experience in immunology
  • proven expertise in a wide range of cellular and molecular immunological techniques
  • the ability to work as part of an inter-disciplinary international team and be willing to undertake part of the research in Ethiopia and/or Rwanda if required 

Please contact Professor Melanie Newport (m.j.newport@bsms.ac.uk) for informal enquiries.

Please note that this position may be subject to ATAS clearance if you require visa sponsorship.

The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and applications are particularly welcomed from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics (STEMM) at Sussex.
