Job Details

Scientist, Cell Biology - Autoimmune Disease


We are seeking CELLULAR IMMUNOLOGISTS to join our dynamic and multi-disciplinary Autoimmune team. This team is exploiting our soluble TCR technology platform to develop novel therapies to treat autoimmune diseases.

Working cross-functionally, this position is a hugely exciting opportunity to break new ground in autoimmunity. We are therefore looking for enthusiastic scientists to contribute and grow in this open, team-oriented environment.

Responsibilities include:-

  • Developing assays to probe the biology of immune cells in the context of autoimmunity
  • Generation of disease-relevant in vitro models to characterise autoimmune-directed drug candidates
  • Validation and preclinical profiling of more advanced candidates

To succeed in this role, you should have technical proficiency in the area of cellular immunology, including the isolation and culture of primary cells. Proficiency in designing and execution of immunoassays is also essential. An understanding of regulatory T-cell biology would be highly desirable.

You should be a skilled problem-solver who can design experiments to address project-relevant questions and report findings in a clear and concise fashion. You will be an excellent communicator and confident presenter, with good time-management skills and the ability to work to tight deadlines. Importantly, you will be a strong team player, with the ability to network in a multi-disciplinary environment. You will be open, pro-active and show flexibility to the needs of the team.

A strong background in autoimmune diseases together with a PhD in cell biology or a related discipline are a requirement. Additional postdoctoral experience would be an advantage but candidates with a recent PhD are also encouraged to apply.

If you would like to work in a friendly, vibrant, fast-paced team developing novel therapeutics we’d love to hear from you!
