King's College London are looking to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow to join the laboratory of Prof Leonie Taams at King’s College London.
As a successful candidate, you would join a large Wellcome Trust funded collaborative project to study the drivers of persistent pain in inflammatory arthritis, also involving the laboratory of Dr Franziska Denk at King’s College London as well as the University of Oxford. You would work on the human biology side of this translational research programme, studying fibroblast-neuron interactions in situ using human tissue samples and in vitro using fibroblast cell lines and iPSc-derived neuronal cells.
You should have a strong grounding in human immunobiology, ideally in the context of inflammatory disease. Previous experience in stromal cell biology and/or in iPSc-derived cell lines would be a distinct advantage. Demonstrable experience in flow cytometry and human cell culture is essential; knowledge of immunostaining and protein/cytokine detection would be highly desirable. A proactive attitude, excellent data analysis and record keeping skills as well as strong interpersonal, communication and time management skills are essential.
