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 (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.


Alternatively, if you are unable to apply online, please email to request an application form.

The new Capella building- CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Capella building will be finished in 2018.


‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
