South Kensington Campus
We are seeking a skilled and highly motivated postdoctoral Research Associate with expertise and experience in molecular innate immunity and/or microbial pathogenesis to work at the MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology & Infection within the Section of Microbiology based at the Flowers Building, South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London.
You will work under the supervision of Dr Avinash Shenoy, whose group focuses broadly on the role of caspases in human infectious and non-infectious (sterile) diseases ( http://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/a.shenoy ). Their main interest include defence against enteric bacterial pathogens such Salmonella, Listeria and pathogenic E. coli . You will join a young and dynamic research group with a multidisciplinary and collaborative outlook - we have cross-Faculty joint students with Life Sciences and Dept of Chemistry. We enjoy the stimulating environment of the MRC CMBI, and are based minutes away from some the best museums in London.
The CMBI and the Shenoy group have state-of-the-art facilities for molecular and cellular analyses and a variety of biochemical, molecular and genetic tools. The current position is on an MRC funded project grant and builds on our recent work on caspase-1, UBE2L3 and regulation of IL-1 production by inflammasomes. You will use complementary biochemical and genetic tools, and new strains of knockout mice to address key questions related to host defence and inflammation. You will have a PhD in Innate Immunity and/or Microbial Pathogenesis, as well as expertise in these and related topics and a strong research experience in molecular biology, protein biochemistry and murine models of infection or inflammation as demonstrated by publications in international peer-reviewed journals. Previous experience in handling mice is highly desirable. Training to obtain UK Home Office Licence will be provided to undertake work with mice.
