Senior Postdoctoral Immunologist

Jenner Institute, Old Road Campus Research Building, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7DQ

We have the exciting opportunity to recruit a Senior Postdoctoral Immunologist to join our research team here at Jenner Institute, Nuffield Department of Medicine.

The Jenner Institute is a global leader in vaccine development and provides an outstanding academic environment. The post will provide exposure to a spectrum of vaccine development activity, encompassing multiple target organisms and spanning from pre-clinical discovery to Phase III clinical efficacy trials.

As Senior Immunologist, you will take a leading role in the development and evaluation of novel experimental medicine and vaccine approaches targeting Epstein Barr virus (EBV) and rabies. You will lead the immunology work of the group. This will be primarily focused on clinical trial immunology, but also includes experimental medicine and pre-clinical development of vaccine candidates. This will also be focused on EBV and rabies, but may develop in other areas depending on the development of research programmes within the Douglas group.

You will be responsible for leading immunological studies, experimental medicine, and vaccine development work targeting EBV and rabies, plus other disease areas that develop within the team. You will be tasked with supervising and developing other members of the team, including research assistants, DPhil students, and Masters students. You will be contributing to other research areas within the group, including the development and testing of other vaccines and immunological studies. Finally, you will also be responsible for regularly writing research articles of internationally-leading quality for peer-reviewed journals, presenting papers at international conferences, and leading seminars to disseminate research findings.

It is essential that you hold a relevant PhD/DPhil with post-qualification research experience in biological or medical sciences. You will have experience of antibody/B cell immunology, clinical research immunology, experimental medicine, and/or vaccine research. You will also have the ability to independently plan and manage research projects as well as the ability to manage and ensure quality assurance of clinical trial data and human research samples. Experience of isolation and characterisation of novel monoclonal antibodies, molecular biology, virology, Good Clinical Practice (GCP), and/or the use of animal models is highly desirable, as is experience of managing and analysing large datasets.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.

This position is initially offered full time on a fixed term contract for 2 years in the first instance and is funded by the Wellcome and Medical Research Council.

Only applications received before 12 midday on Friday 17 May 2024 will be considered. Please quote 172286 on all correspondence.
