We’re looking for an experienced cell biologist to play a leading role in our vibrant, fast moving and multi-disciplinary autoimmune team! This highly effective team is advancing our soluble T cell technology platform in autoimmune diseases.
Working cross functionally in this translational setting is a hugely exciting opportunity to break new ground in autoimmunity, so we're looking for a specialist.
Salary: £50,000-£75,000 per annum
- Lead the Cell Biology efforts to characterize our effector molecules and ImmTAAI drug candidates in cellular models relevant to Autoimmunity
- Contribute significantly to the overall strategy of the Autoimmune Department and represent the team in front of internal and external partners
- Lead a high performance team of cellular immunologists (8 FTEs) and generate a cell-based assay platform to advance our molecules towards development
To succeed in this role, you should have a strong background in autoimmune research. Experience in translational biology or Treg immunology would be a distinct advantage.
As part of the autoimmune leadership team you should be a strategist and skilled problem-solver who can define project-relevant questions, design experiments to address these and interpret findings in a larger context. You will be an excellent communicator and strong team player, with the ability to network in a multi-disciplinary environment. You will have the ability to see your contributions in a broader context and support your team members in their career development.
A strong background in autoimmune diseases together with an advanced scientific degree - PhD in cell biology or a related discipline - and extensive postdoctoral experience, preferably in industry, are a requirement. The candidate should also have previous line management experience and the ability to lead a highly talented team in a fast-paced environment.
We look forward to hearing from you!
