Postdoctoral scientist - respiratory health

A position is available for an ambitious and enthusiastic postdoctoral scientist to join a growing research programme in mechanisms of airways inflammation and infection led by Dr Timothy Hinks; based at the Respiratory Medicine Unit, within the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the John Radcliffe Hospital. The project will use a range of new strains available from our collaborators in MRC Harwell and Southampton University to develop novel murine models of chronic bacterial airways infection. The work will use a variety of bacterial and viral infections, and allergic/type 2 airway inflammation, with detailed airway physiology and immunological analysis using flow cytometry, intracellular cytokine staining and tetramers to characterise the mucosal immune response. For further details, please see link below or email Dr Hinks directly on timothy.hinks@ndm.ox.ac.uk.
