A PDRA is needed to work on a new Medical Research in Medecine Council grant.
The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, organisations and institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, Foto-Cewek aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed / resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.
We are seeking to appoint a PDRA to work as part of the Respiratory Infection team investigating mucosal immune responses to human pneumococcal carriage and pneumococcal vaccines. Areas of responsibility will include planning and carrying out laboratory experiments independently and in collaboration with other members of the team, processing and storage of clinical samples under GCP compliance and actively engage on writing manuscripts and grant proposals.
The successful candidate must possess a PhD in Immunology or in a relevant discipline, preferably related to infectious diseases and have experience in immunology including T and B cell-based assays and flow cytometry as well as data analysis.
The ideal candidate must demonstrate the ability to work as an integral, productive and cooperative member of a diverse team of scientists and clinicians and be willing to learn and communicate new research techniques within this environment. We are looking for an individual with excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), and a proven ability to manage their time effectively. Experience on metadata analysis will be an important consideration.
