We are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral Research Fellow in Molecular and Cell Biology
The successful applicant will conduct research on variable gene expression and erythrocyte invasion mechanisms by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum, culturing and cloning selected parasite lines sampled from endemic sites in West Africa. This is a strategic part of a research programme supported by an ERC Advanced Award to Professor David Conway. The post is based in London at LSHTM, and will involve collaboration with several research groups in West Africa, and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the UK. Responsibilities range from design and support of sample collection for ex vivo and long-term culture adaptation studies, to cloning and genetic manipulation experiments with a focus on cellular phenotypes. The ideal applicant will be excellent in a range of molecular and cell biological analysis skills, demonstrating exceptional promise for developing novel methods to understand host cell invasion and immune evasion by parasites.
