Salary Range: £33,860 - £42,830 per annum 

Full-time, fixed term for three years

 St Mary’s Campus

 

We are seeking a postdoctoral scientist to join our team of Mathematical Immunologists at Imperial College London under the guidance of Dr Becca Asquith.

 

You will work on a new interdisciplinary project, funded by the Wellcome Trust, which is a collaboration between theorists at Imperial College London, clinicians at St Mary’s Hospital and experimental immunologists at St George’s Hospital.

 

The aim of the project is to investigate the dynamics of CD8+ T cell control of chronic virus infections including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human T cell leukemia virus (HTLV-1). In particular, we wish to investigate the mechanism underlying a protective genotype we have recently discovered. The post holder will be responsible for the mathematical modelling of patient data resulting from a range of experiments.

Applications must have a PhD in Mathematical Biology, Mathematics, Physics, Bioinformatics or similar. Previous experience of mathematical immunology would be an advantage. A commitment to interdisciplinary science, an interest in modelling experimental data and an enthusiasm for communicating with experts outside your field is essential.

Our preferred method of application is online via our website at http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/employment (please select “Job Search” then enter the job title or vacancy reference number into “Keywords”). Please complete and upload an application form as directed quoting reference number HM2016080.
