Postdoctoral researcher

Sanger Institute

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study cellular immune responses to herpesvirus infection. The researcher will study cytomegalovirus infection of iPS-derived cells, using techniques including CRISPR to identify mechanisms that regulate virus-induced pro-inflammatory cytokine production. This is a collaborative project between Dr Ian Humphreys (Cardiff University) and Professor Gordon Dougan (Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, WTSI). The individual will be based at the WTSI, but it is envisaged that short visits to Cardiff may be required. In the first instance, this Wellcome Trust-funded position will commence ~July 2016 and is available until September 2017. Extension possible.


Please send any expressions of interest to Dr Ian Humphreys (
