Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer Immunology

Antibody and Vaccine Group, Centre for Cancer Immunology, University of Southampton, Faculty of Medicine, School of Cancer Sciences

Monoclonal antibodies (mAb) are now established as effective treatments for cancer, albeit with considerable potential for further improvement. The Antibody and Vaccine Group based in the Centre for Cancer Immunology in Southampton has a strong track-record in basic and translational immunology relating to developing therapeutic mAb for clinical examination.

We are currently running an extensive programme of research led by Profs Mark Cragg, Stephen Beers, Bjorn Frendeus and Sean Lim to develop new and more effective antibody reagents for cancer patients. The current opportunity is for a research fellow to join the team to help dissect mechanisms of action for mAb capable of manipulating immune and tumour cells to elicit powerful anti-tumour responses, with the potential for a direct impact on clinical development.

You will be motivated, educated in a relevant subject area and have practical laboratory experience of antibody biology and in vivo methodology.

Informal queries should be directed to Professor Mark Cragg ([email protected])
