Current vacancies

Barclay-Williams Professorship of Molecular Immunology

The successful candidate will have shown the capacity to make a distinguished contribution to the study of any area of molecular immunology, interpreted broadly, although preference will be given to candidates whose research complements existing strengths at the Dunn School. They will have an excellent record of publication, as well as a commitment to training, mentoring and capacity building.

Institution/Organisation:
University of Oxford
Application deadline:
Research Fellow

You will pursue a 4-year project funded by the Medical Research Council UK, aimed at identifying the mechanisms underlying the activity of immune checkpoint inhibitors in melanoma brain metastases. The project aims to understand the role of different immune cells in immune checkpoint inhibitor-mediated tumour inhibition in the brain, both at the cellular and molecular level. The project will integrate molecular and efficacy studies in preclinical models of brain metastases as well as in transgenic mouse models, with studies in human brain metastases tissue. The overarching goal is to identify strategies that could potentiate the efficacy of immunotherapy in melanoma brain metastases.

Institution/Organisation:
University of Leeds
Application deadline:
Postdoctoral Fellow

The Wellcome Sanger Institute are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to carry out single cell transcriptome profiling of the innate immune response in dengue virus infected patients using single-cell RNA sequencing. Specifically the aim is to gain an insight into the immune mechanisms that allow the development of an asymptomatic infection followed by virus clearance versus those mechanisms that lead to fever or severe infection.

Institution/Organisation:
Wellcome Sanger Institute

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. 

Institution/Organisation:
University of Birmingham
Application deadline:
Chair/Reader/Senior Lecturer

The Institute of Infection and Global Health at the University of Liverpool are seeking an outstanding scientist to lead a world class research programme in the area of the immunology of infectious disease. They are willing to appoint at Senior Lecturer, Reader or Chair level commensurate with experience. They anticipate that the appointee will complement the Institute’s existing research programmes and they would welcome applications from immunologists working in any relevant area of pathogen immunology, including, but not restricted to, vaccine development for veterinary and/or medical pathogens, basic host/pathogen interactions and the immunology of co-infections.

University of Liverpool
Application deadline:
PhD opportunity

Do you want to make a difference in patients’ lives? Are you interested in combatting fungal infectious disease? Do you want advanced training in molecular biology, genomics and/or immunology? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you should consider the MRes-PhD studentships offered by the MRC Centre for Medical Mycology at the University of Aberdeen (MRC CMM). 

Institution/Organisation:
University of Aberdeen
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.

Institution/Organisation:
GlaxoSmithKline
