The successful applicant will work jointly with Dr Hashem Koohy's group, specialised in taking systems and quantitative approaches to foster understanding of T cell response and function and Graham Ogg's group specialised in skin immunology. The successful candidate will conduct research in a dynamic and highly collaborative environment of an internationally leading research institute. They will benefit from the institute and wider university expertise in immunology, computational biology, machine-learning and big-data science. There will be opportunities to develop new models to explain differential responses of T cell populations during homeostasis, inflammation and cancer.

To be considered for this position you should have a Ph.D. in a relevant subject and solid background in at least one of Bioinformatics, Machine- Learning, Statistics and Data Science.

You should also have excellent programming skills in at least one programming languages preferably Python or R, experience and knowledge of software packages commonly used for analysing single cell data and experience of working with High Performance Computing clusters.
