Are you driven by a challenging role to help drive breakthroughs in applied immunology as part of a unique academic – industry initiative?  If so, this post-doctoral research associate /senior scientist role would be a great opportunity.

We are seeking a highly motivated and skilled scientist with both practical and theoretical knowledge in immuno-oncology to join The GSK Immunology Network as a member of the Inflammation Biology Group at King’s College London, led by Professor Toby Lawrence.

The Immunology Network is a novel and innovative academic partnership with GSK, designed to integrate the best of GSK and academic immunology to deliver breakthrough science and ultimately medicines for patients. Leading academic immunologists have been selected to work alongside GSK scientists and program teams at our world class Stevenage R&D hub, where together they carry out fundamental immunology research.

As a member of Prof Lawrence’s team in the Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology (CIBCI) at King’s College London and part of the Immunology Network, you will work alongside GSK scientists, spending time at Kings College London, as well as being part of GSK’s Immuno-Oncology & Combinations Research Unit (IOC RU) in Stevenage, performing cutting edge research to develop targeted therapeutics for tumour-associated macrophages. This opportunity provides an unique experience of both academic and industry settings, exposure to world-leading research in both academia and industry and the opportunity to contribute to innovative R&D to help deliver the next wave of transformational medicines for patients.

The successful candidate will have excellent communication and organisational skills, be a self-starter with the ability to work effectively in a complex matrix environment and will be required to maintain accurate records and present results at team and project meetings.
