The Opportunity

The aim of the research is to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the immune system in relation to viral infection. In particular, how a key immune cell (the killer T cell) controls viruses in the body, and conversely, how viruses mutate to escape the immune system. As part of a broad collaborative network that includes lead national and international researchers, the laboratory has provided profound insight into T cell immunology, specifically defining the basis of key immune recognition events by T cells.

Group Leader Senior Research Fellow, Stephanie Gras, is seeking highly motivated and talented postdoctoral scientists and research assistants to join the research group. The selected candidates will work in the area of viral immunity and structural biology. For more information: view Dr Stephanie Gras' research profile.
