Antibody and Vaccine Group, Centre for Cancer Immunology, University of Southampton, Faculty of Medicine, School of Cancer Sciences

The Antibody and Vaccine Group based in the recently opened Centre for Cancer Immunology in Southampton has a strong track-record in basic and translational immunology. One of its central aims is to develop new and more effective antibody reagents for treating cancer. 

An exciting opportunity now presents itself for a research fellow to work on a Cancer Research UK funded programme to determine how a family of key receptors (Fc receptors) are regulated and serve to deliver antibody-mediated cancer cell destruction. The post-holder will leverage expertise in antibody biology, myeloid cells, transcriptomics, immunology, and cell biology in order to gain new understanding of this critical receptor family with the aim of improving cancer treatments.

You will be motivated, educated to PhD level in a relevant subject area and ideally have practical laboratory experience of antibody biology, myeloid cells, bioinformatics and in vivo methodology. 

Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification.  The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD.  Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.

This post is offered on a full-time fixed term contract for 12 months.
