Project Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Early Stage Researcher in Quantitative T Cell Immunology in the Department of Medicine, Imperial College London.

You will join a new interdisciplinary project headed by Dr Becca Asquith, carrying out experimental research on the dynamics, lineage and generation of stem cell memory T cells in humans. You will be part of the European Union funded H2020 Programme Initial Training Network, which involves Universities, Research Institutes and industrial companies across Europe. You will be one of a cohort of 15 Early Stage Researchers and will undergo training together and attend joint network-wide events. The position includes funding for home/EU PhD tuition fees.

You will be a dedicated member of the group who will perform mathematical modelling work (including model development and parameter inference) and some experimental work (including stable isotope labelling, flow cytometry and RNAseq) to investigate the dynamics, maintenance and and lineage of memory T cells in humans. The ideal candidate will have training in both mathematical modelling techniques and experimental immunology. However, we also welcome applications from individuals with a solely theoretical or solely experimental background.

You must hold a first degree or equivalent (e.g. BSc / BA) in Mathematics, Physics, Bioinformatics, Computer Sciences, Biology, Biomedicine, Biochemistry or other appropriate discipline. Knowledge of immunology, basic research methods and statistical procedures is also required.

Brexit: Please note that this position and the associated funding are guaranteed whatever the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.
Application: For more details and to submit an application please go to the Imperial College website

The post is full-time fixed-term for 3 years until 31 August 2022.Should you require any further details on the role please contact Dr Becca Asquith:

The position is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 Programme. Candidates must be eligible to be appointed as an Early Stage Researcher in the UK. You will have, at the time of recruitment, less than four years full-time equivalent research experience and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which would formally entitle him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited or seconded, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is or was ever envisaged.

The successful candidate must be able to start work on or before 1 September 2019.

Funding Notes

In addition to the above criteriea, you should, at the time of recruitment, not have resided or carried out your main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the UK for more than twelve months in the three years immediately prior to the date of recruitment). There are no nationality restrictions but the post only covers home/EU PhD tuition fees, if you are not eligible for home/EU fees and wish to undertake a PhD you must fund the difference between overseas and home/EU fees.
