You will manage own academic research and administrative activities, this involves small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. You will adapt existing and develop new scientific techniques and experimental protocols and test hypotheses and analyse scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate. You will use specialist scientific equipment in a laboratory environment and act as a source of information and advice to other members of the group on scientific protocols and experimental techniques.
You must hold a postgraduate degree (or near completion) in immunology, molecular biology, genomics or similar disciplines, together with relevant experience. You will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in biochemistry, molecular immunology, myeloid cell biology and signal transduction pathways to work within established research programmes and have extensive experience in working with the state of the art functional genomic technologies, such as CRISPR-Cas9 system. Experience of independently managing a discrete area of a research project and of actively collaborating with industry and within the academic environment is desirable.
