Postdoctoral Training Fellow

Location: The Francis Crick Institute, Midland Road, London         
Contract: Fixed-term, 4 years, Full time
Salary: Competitive with benefits, subject to skills and experience
Vacancy ID: 7784

An exciting opportunity to be part of a pioneering biomedical research institute, dedicated to innovation and science.  A postdoctoral research post is now available in the laboratory of Victor Tybulewicz. The lab is studying signalling pathways that control the biology of B and T lymphocytes. In particular, we are working on pathways that control lymphocyte activation, differentiation, survival, adhesion and migration. For more information see the lab website.

Project scope

We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to identify and study novel pathways controlling B cell survival or B cell differentiation. The work builds on studies that have demonstrated cross talk between the BAFF receptor and the B cell antigen receptor in controlling B cell survival. The work is likely to use mouse genetics, CRIPSR screens, proteomics, transcriptomics, biochemistry and imaging, and will be supported by the outstanding core facilities of the Francis Crick Institute.

Candidates with research experience in immunology or with expertise in bioinformatics are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will have good communication and organisational skills and a PhD in a relevant area (or be in the final stages of completion).

About us

The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.

An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.

The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.

The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
