You must hold a PhD (or be close to completion) in immunology (or have equivalent experience). The successful candidate will also have an excellent academic track record and considerable experience of immunological techniques, including functional assays and multiparameter flow cytometry: they will develop their own projects as well as provide training and guidance to students and visitors (including from amongst our overseas collaborators) in the laboratory. There would also be opportunities to spend short visits with our collaborators overseas.

Postdoctoral Research Scientist (Molecular Immunology)

The Babraham Institute is a charity which is world renowned for its research in life sciences to enhance lives and improve wellbeing.

They are seeking a dedicated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Research Scientist to join the newly established laboratory of Dr Claudia Ribeiro de Almeida within the Lymphocyte Signalling and Development programme at The Babraham Institute. The Ribeiro de Almeida laboratory studies the emerging role of RNA and RNA binding proteins (RBPs) in controlling B lymphocyte development and immunoglobulin gene rearrangements.

They are interested in the mechanisms regulating immunoglobulin gene rearrangements and their potential implications for age-related immune dysfunction. The ideal candidate must have an interest in immunology and hands-on expertise in biochemistry and molecular biology will be considered an asset.

The post-holder will undertake a pivotal position in our current research to investigate the role of RNA helicases in class switch recombination (CSR) at the immunoglobulin heavy-chain locus. This includes employing state-of-the-art genomic and proteomic approaches to identify novel RBPs implicated in CSR, and exploring their molecular function using biochemical and cellular assays. This work may provide new targets to modulate B cell function during vaccination and immune disease, or uncover pathological mechanisms associated with the development of B cell malignancies.

The successful applicant should have a PhD in a biological science or equivalent qualification, and can demonstrate a proven track record in academic research. Experience of molecular biology, cell culture are essential. In addition, experience in mass spectrometry, Next Generation Sequencing methodologies and RNA biology are highly desirable.
