Job description

This successful applicant needs to be in post from 2nd July 2018 and the opportunity is for a fixed term period of 2 years.

Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work on a project designed to investigate the phenotype and specificity of immune cells infiltrating the pancreas of patients with Type 1 diabetes.  The project is funded by JDRF for two years and is a collaboration with colleagues at the University of Exeter. The Research Fellow in Lincoln will use molecular approaches to determine the characteristics of immune cells involved in the destruction of insulin-secreting cells causing disease. The successful candidate will join a group with an international reputation in Type 1 diabetes research located at the University of Lincoln. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in immunology, biochemistry, biomedical sciences or a related area and experience in molecular biology techniques would be an advantage. Candidates close to completing their PhD may also apply.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic research, and is based in high quality, recently developed facilities.

If you would like to know more about this opportunity, informal enquiries can be made to Dr Michael Christie, Reader in Biomedical Sciences via email: mchristie@lincoln.ac.uk.

As a member of the Athena SWAN Charter we are committed to providing equality of opportunity and advancing the representation of women in STEM subjects.
