Job Summary
We are pursuing a Research adjunct or Research Associate to join our team of Mathematical Immunologists at Imperial College London under the guidance of Dr Becca Asquith.
You will work on an interdisciplinary project, funded by the Wellcome Trust, which is a collaboration between theorists, clinicians and experimental immunologists. The aim of the project is to understand the relationship between host genetics, CD8+ T cell dynamics and immune control of chronic virus infections including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human T cell leukemia virus (HTLV-1). This project follows on from previous studies from our group e.g. Boelen et al Science Immunology 2018, Costa del Amo et al PLOS Biology 2018, Patel et al JEM 2017.
Your function will be to develop novel models and approaches to analyse and interpret new experimental data using a range of theoretical techniques (including ordinary differential equation modelling, multivariate regression, and frequentist and/or Bayesian parameter inference).
tasks and responsibilities
You will be responsible for the mathematical modelling of novel patient data resulting from a range of experiments which have been performed by our collaborators. Your function will be to utilise existing models and to develop novel models with the ultimate aim of a mechanistic, quantitative knowledge of the system.
You will be expected to communicate your findings to the community both by publishing in high quality journals and by presentation at international conferences.
Essential requirements
You will either hold a PhD in a significant discipline or, in the absence of a PhD, have similar research practice post-graduation.
candidates must have a PhD/postgraduate practice in Mathematical Biology, Mathematics, Physics, Bioinformatics or similar. Previous practice of mathematical or experimental immunology would be an advantage. A commitment to interdisciplinary science, an interest in modelling experimental data and an enthusiasm for communicating with experts outside your field is essential.
more information
This post is full time and fixed-term until 07 April 2021 in the first instance.
