A postdoctoral immunology fellowship position is available to join Prof Padraic Fallon’s Translational Immunology Research group in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. The group is involved in research on the immunology of inflammatory diseases undertaking studies using clinical samples as well as animal models. The Fellow will be engaged in research on innate and adaptive immune regulation during inflammatory diseases using new transgenic mice. The Fellow will work on a designated project as part of a team and will have opportunities to work independently within a multi-disciplinary research environment. As required, specialized training will be provided in laboratories of international collaborators.
The post holder will be an immunologist required to undertake research on inflammation projects investigating innate and adaptive immune cell activation and functions.
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and enthusiastuc scientist with the ability and ambition to undertake research of the highest standard. Applicants will have a research record with publications appropriate to career stage.
Applicants should have proven proficiency in research on mouse models. It is essential that applicants have expertise in immune cell experimentation including flow cytometry, cell/tissue culture and molecular techniques.
Experience of working with inflammatory mouse models of disease, including transgenics, is desirable. The ability to work independently on a project as well co-operatively within a team is essential.
Must be a well organized immunologists with excellent writing, communication and interpersonal skills are essential.
