University of Southampton (UK)

Applications are invited for 2 Research Fellows and 1 PhD student to join Dr. Gomez-Nicola’s team (www.dgnlab.co.uk) to study the role of microglia in the healthy brain and under chronic neurodegeneration, using animal models.  Experience in areas related to neuroscience or neuroimmunology is essential. 

You will have a PhD or equivalent professional qualification and laboratory experience in a relevant area, with a strong neuroscience or neuroimmunology component. Having previous experience with in vivo models will be advantageous. You should be an enthusiastic and well-motivated scientist, capable of contributing substantially to developing your own research project, a good team-worker and an excellent communicator.

These 3 posts are for 3 years and funded by the Medical Research Council and the Leverhulme Trust.

This post offers an opportunity to gain experience of diverse techniques working in a research team within an exciting multi-disciplinary research environment. 

The University of Southampton provides an outstanding environment for research on neuroscience. The research group is part of the Alzheimer’s Research UK South Coast Network and the Southampton Neuroscience Group (SoNG), and is integrated across the disciplines of biology and medicine including laboratories with clinical and non-clinical expertise.

Interviews are likely to be held in July. Informal inquires can be made to Dr Gomez-Nicola (Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo.).
