Postdoctoral Training Fellow

Contract Term:

This is a full-time, fixed term (4 year) position on Crick terms and conditions of employment.

Project summary

Much of our work focuses on neutrophils and their interaction with other immune cells. We study neutrophil biology at the biochemical, cell biological and organismal level. Our prior work identified mechanisms that enable neutrophils to drive atherosclerosis but also to distinguish between different pathogens and tune inflammation for efficient pathogen clearance

The project will involve a variety of techniques in the aforementioned areas to investigate novel roles for neutrophils in immunity and inflammation.

Postdoctoral Training Fellows are expected to lead their own projects, contribute to other projects on a collaborative basis (both in the lab and with external collaborators) and participate in training PhD students. The ability to work in a team is essential.
