University Lecturer in Immunology

Department of Pathology

The University of Cambridge wishes to appoint a University Lecturer in Immunology based in Central Cambridge within the Department of Pathology

The post is available from 1 October 2017 and aims to strengthen the Department's wide-ranging research in Immunology that includes innate immunity, immunogenetics, mechanisms of antigen presentation, NK cell function and autoimmunity, and its teaching and training of undergraduate and graduate students.

The successful candidate is expected to undertake research supported by external grant funding and to publish in respected international journals. In addition, the successful candidate is expected to make a general contribution to the academic work of the Department and the University, including teaching in those courses for which the Department of Pathology is responsible.

Applicants are required to demonstrate excellence in research and have a good publication record proportionate to their length of experience.

The new Capella building- CITIID

‘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.
