Oxford-BMS Research Fellow

NDORMS, Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Roosevelt Drive, Headington, Oxford OX3 7FY

Grade 7: £32,817 – £40,322 p.a.

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to work with Professor Lynn Dustin on an exciting new project to understand how immune tolerance fails in Sjögren’s syndrome. You will be based at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, University of Oxford, which is a world-leading research centre where discovery research drives development of transformative therapies for chronic inflammatory and degenerative disease.

The successful applicant will carry out single-cell analysis of autoreactive human B cells in Sjögren’s syndrome. Methods to be used include spectral flow cytometry, fluorescence-activated cell sorting, single-cell RNAseq, gene expression analysis, and single-cell immunoglobulin cloning. You will be part of a highly collaborative project involving academic and industrial partners and will provide guidance to less experienced members of the research group, including postdocs, research assistants, technicians, and PhD and project students.

You will hold a PhD (or be near completion) in Immunology or a related discipline, and have experience of bioinformatics, cell isolation and culture, flow cytometry and molecular biology. As well as the ability to manage your own research and associated activities, you will have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings.

This is a full-time post which is fixed term until 31 March 2024.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 5 March 2021. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.

Please direct your informal enquiries to Prof. Lynn Dustin:lynn.dustin@kennedy.ox.ac.uk
