The successful candidate will be a highly productive, ambitious and collaborative member of the Infection Biology research team led by Prof Jose Bengoechea within the Centre. The two year position will involve working as part of a MRC-funded research programme in collaboration with AstraZeneca that seeks to establish first-in-kind host-directed therapeutics against the human pathogen Klebsiella pneumoniae. The project, at the interphase of microbiology and immunology, will utilise in vitro, and in vivo models of infection techniques and is based in a highly collaborative team. The post is a senior role in the team and as such, successful applicants will have responsibilities in independent research, supervision, planning, day-to-day lab management, collaborations and outreach. The post is suited to a highly ambitious individual, preferably with previous postdoctoral experience.
