A post-doctoral research fellow position is available within the newly established Fungal Immunology Group within the Institute of Immunology & Immunotherapy, College of Medical & Dental Sciences, University of Birmingham, led by Dr Rebecca Drummond. We are looking for an enthused and committed scientist with expertise in assessing immune responses in vivo. The candidate’s research will be aiming to dissect mechanisms underlying organ-specific immune responses to fungal pathogens. This research will primarily employ animal models of fungal diseases to investigate inflammatory processes occurring during infection, focusing largely on the tissues of the central nervous system (see Drummond et al 2019 Nat Immunol and Drummond 2017 J Fungi for further research details).
All applicants should be proficient with in vivo immunology (e.g. lymphocyte transfers), flow cytometry, basic tissue culture and molecular biology techniques. Prior experience with microscopy and/or bioinformatics would be advantageous. Applicants should be able to demonstrate prior research success; for example, through publications/pre-prints, presentations at conferences and relevant academic prizes/travel awards.
