Position: Post-doctoral Research Assistant
Institution: Queen Mary University of London
Department: William Harvey Research Institute
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher who will use experimental murine models of malignancies to conduct ground-braking world-class research on the contribution of ACKR1 expression in the erythroid compartment of the bone marrow to the pathophysiology of haematopoiesis and its downstream effects, as primarily related to the interface of host immunity and cancer. This work is of particular relevance to the health of individuals of African ancestry who, due to the hugely prevalent SNP in ACKR1 gene do not express this receptor in erythroid cells
Requirements: The candidates should have relevant qualifications of PhD, MD, DVM or equivalent, a strong track record of successful research as demonstrated by publications in renowned international journals would be an advantage

WHRI, in a strategic partnership with the multi-disciplinary Centre for Inflammation and Therapeutic Innovation (CiTI; www.qmul.ac.uk/citi/ ) at the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), is at the vanguard of uncovering molecular and cellular disease pathomechanisms and exploring innovative strategies for their effective therapies. Professor Antal Rot ( http://www.qmul.ac.uk/whri/people/academic-staff/items/rotantal.html ) is an internationally recognised pioneer investigator studying functions of chemokines and their receptors with particular focus on the mechanisms guiding their diverse pathophysiological roles. His group at the Centre of Microvascular Research, WHRI and CiTI uses modern tools of experimental pathology and immunology to uncover the multifaceted contributions of the atypical chemokine receptors to immunity and disease pathogenesis. In this context, supported by the Wellcome Trust Investigator Award to Professor Antal Rot, we are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher who will use experimental murine models of malignancies to conduct ground-braking world-class research on the contribution of ACKR1 expression in the erythroid compartment of the bone marrow to the pathophysiology of haematopoiesis and its downstream effects, as primarily related to the interface of host immunity and cancer. This work is of particular relevance to the health of individuals of African ancestry who, due to the hugely prevalent SNP in ACKR1 gene do not express this receptor in erythroid cells https://www.nature.com/articles/ni.3763 The candidates should have relevant qualifications of PhD, MD, DVM or equivalent, a strong track record of successful research as demonstrated by publications in renowned international journals would be an advantage.
