The University of Southampton has a strong track record in basic and translational immunology, including development of biologics that stimulate anti-cancer T cell responses. You will work on developing a novel class of synthetic agents capable of targeting specific members of the TNFRSF. The focus of the work will be to use state of the art imaging techniques, cellular and biochemical assays as well as pre-clinical models to evaluate the therapeutic potential of these agents.

You will have an interest and experience in both cell biology and tumour immunology. It is essential you have a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and laboratory experience in cellular immunology and/or pre-clinical models of cancer. The ideal candidate will demonstrate excellent data management, verbal and written communication skills and will be able to work independently, as well as part of a team.
