Postdoctoral Researcher in Innate Immunity and Inflammation
NDORMS, Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Old Road Campus, Oxford, OX3 7FY
Grade 7: £33,309 - £40,927 p.a.
We have an exciting opportunity within the Genomics of Inflammation laboratory
at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics,
Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS). The post holder will
have responsibility for carrying out research in the transcriptional and
molecular control of neutrophil development and function in inflammatory
tissue microenvironment, within a new leading-edge programme funded by the
Wellcome Trust (see Khoyratty et al, Nature Immunology 2021; Ballesteros et
al, Cell 2020). You will be using unique in vivo models, advanced
immunological and imaging approaches and innovative single cell technologies
to study how neutrophil function in the tissue is guided by intrinsic
molecular regulators and influenced by extrinsic protein and lipid signals
produced by macrophages.
As a Postdoctoral Researcher in Innate Immunity and Inflammation you will take
responsibility for the planning and execution of high quality research,
ensuring the validity and reliability of data at all times, as well as test
hypotheses and analyse scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing
and refining working hypotheses as appropriate. You will also contribute ideas
for new research projects, co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet
deadlines, and provide guidance and support to PhD students and other members
of the group.
You will hold a PhD (or near completion) in immunology, molecular and
cellular biology, or similar, and have excellent communication skills,
including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and
results, and represent the research group at meetings. You will demonstrate
capacity to deliver high quality research outputs, illustrated by a strong
publication record in high profile immunological journals, as well as possess
sufficient specialist knowledge in transcriptional control of immune cell
development and function to work within established research programmes.
Expertise in neutrophil biology, functional and single cell genomics, spatial
transcriptomics or advanced imaging analysis would be desirable.
This is a full-time appointment fixed-term until 24/06/2024.
You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and names of
referees as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 1st November
