Research Fellow

Applications are invited for a mathematical modeller to join the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). The post holder will work on a large project to evaluate Ebola vaccine trials and vaccination strategies. The post involves analysing individual level social network data from Ebola-affected communities, and investigating the transmission of Ebola Virus Disease. The post-holder will quantify network characteristics from raw data, and use insights from these data to design and simulate phase 3 vaccine trials.

PhD opportunity

Impact of increasing environmental CO2 on plant immunity. The primary objective of this PhD project is to gain a mechanistic understanding of how plant immunity and pathogen infection strategies will be modified in a future eCO2 world. Using knowledge gained from A. thaliana as a springboard, this project will explore the impact of eCO2 on disease resistance in two economically-relevant crops, wheat and tomato, and different tree species in a mature forest (including oak trees), against filamentous pathogens.

University of Birmingham
Application deadline:
Postdoctoral Research Associate

The University of Oxford are seeking a highly motivated and proactive Postdoctoral Researcher to join the research group of Dr Alexander Clarke at the University of Oxford. You will use a combination of experimental techniques to explore the metabolism of the germinal centre in patients with lupus and model the findings in transgenic and autoimmune-prone mice, with the aim of developing new therapeutic approaches. You will also provide guidance to less experienced members of the research group including postdocs, research assistants, technicians, PhD and project students.

Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow

The University of Southampton are currently running a programme of research led by Dr Sean Lim to understand how mAbs can be combined to promote effective cancer immunotherapy. In particular, they are interested in the innate effects of T-cell stimulation of agonistic mAbs. The overall aim is to gain sufficient understanding to select the best mAb candidates for translation into clinical trial. You will be highly motivated, educated to PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in a relevant subject area and have practical laboratory experience. Ideally you will have research experience in standard cell-biological or immunological techniques, as well as practical experience of bioinformatics and systems biology approaches.

Institution/Organisation:
University of Southampton
Application deadline:
Senior Scientist / Investigator

This is a senior laboratory-based position and the successful candidate will be responsible for developing, performing and/or overseeing various research activities with a focus on immunological mechanisms. Examples include flow cytometric immunophenotyping, in vivo studies of inflammation and in vitro complex co-culture cell systems. They will bring expertise in: immunology, flow cytometry, in vivo studies, cell biology and signalling. Experience in analysing and interpreting big datasets, including ‘omics’ data or expertise in neuroimmunology, would be an advantage.
