A Research Associate position is available to study human Natural Killer cell biology using super-resolution fluorescence microscopy.

The project will be based in Professor Dan Davis’s laboratory in The University of Manchester, to study fundamental aspects of molecular recognition by human Natural Killer cells, using super-resolution fluorescence microscopy (PALM, STORM, STED and others) as well as molecular and cell biology techniques. See for example: Immunity, 53, 1215 (2020), Biophysical Journal 119, 2404 (2020), PNAS, 117, 23717 (2020), Blood Advances 4, 1388 (2020), Science Signaling, eaaw9252, (2019); J. Cell Biol, 17, 3267-3283, (2018); Lancet, 391, 2205-2206, (2018). See our lab web-page for more details:

This is an exciting opportunity to join a well-equipped multidisciplinary team studying immune cell biology in health and disease using novel and state-of-the-art super-resolution microscopy. You should have a PhD or equivalent level of professional qualification and experience. Experience in immune cell biology or microscopy is essential.
