Postdoctoral Research Associate in Innate Immunology

Department : Peter Gorer Department of Immunobiology

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences at King's College London in the laboratory of Dr Annika Warnatsch. Dr Warnatsch investigates the role of neutrophil-mediated reactive oxygen production in antiviral inflammation. Specifically, the project will analyse the regulation of cytokine signalling, immune cell recruitment and organisation through reactive oxygen species localisation during influenza A virus infection. The successful candidate will work closely with Dr Warnatsch but also design, perform and interpret experimental protocols independently. The post-doc will be expected to be self-motivated, able to organise and self-direct in writing up and presenting results and findings. The post-doc will be expected to hold a PhD in a relevant area with a significant background in innate immunology, inflammation or virus infection. Previous experience with either viral infection or in vivo mouse models will be essential. Familiarity with flow cytometry and/or immunofluorescence staining and confocal microscopy will be an advantage. The post is full-time for 18 months initially with the possibility for prolongation.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 18 months.

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent.

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.

To apply, please register with the King's College London application portal and complete your application online.

When applying, in the 'Upload supporting documents' section, please attach a personal statement to tell us why you are suitable for the role.

Grade and Salary : The salary will be paid at Grade 6, £37,412 per annum, inclusive of £3,223 per annum London Allowance.
