A three-year fixed term appointment for a Postdoctoral Fellow is available in the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine at Brighton and Sussex Medical School.
The post holder will be responsible to the Chair in Immunology, Professor Florian Kern.
The work will cover two main project areas with large technological overlap, one exploring the effect of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection on the vascular system and immunological ageing, the second related to basic T-cell target protein discovery and epitope mapping.
The projects require general experience in immunological laboratory techniques including flow-cytometry, cell culture, cellular activation assays, and molecular biology, however, additional practical knowledge of virological techniques will be of advantage.
The ability to design and conduct experiments independently is essential.
The Chair of Immunology focuses on the role of cellular antigen specific immune responses in infectious diseases and at older ages. The Immunology research group cooperates internationally to maintain the highest level of technology and expertise in this area.
A stimulating and supportive environment is provided.
Please contact Prof. F. Kern (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for informal enquiries.
The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and applications are particularly welcomed from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics (STEMM) at Sussex.
Please note that this position may be subject to ATAS clearance if you require visa sponsorship.
