Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

A new postdoctoral fellowship position in bioinformatics is available at University of Cambridge. This position is closed on October 28, 2018.

We are learning more and more about the tissue lymphocytes populating the uterus. We are indeed a few steps away from finding out what they do. How do they help the fetus to grow? Do they fight infection? Do they retain memory of pregnancy? Apply today and you may be the one who discovers just that!

You can find out more about our work in Filipovic et al.

Nature Communications (PMID28874785, PMID24577131), Cell Reports (PMID26711346), Journal of Clinical Investigation (PMID:24789879), Journal of Immunology (PMID26371244). A list of publications from the lab can be found at

You will work with a dynamic team of talented PhD students, a dedicated Research Assistant and a Laboratory Manager within a close collaboration with a Bioinformatician. You will have access to transgenic mice lacking specific subsets of Group 1 ILCs, infection models, Flow and Mass Cytometry (including Imaging Mass Cytometry), RNA-sequencing, 3D-micro-CT imaging to study fetal organ development, and other, conventional methods. The lab collaborates with research groups within the Department and the School and with other labs within the Centre for Trophoblast Research.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 December 2021 in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a security check.

Please ensure that you upload a covering letter and CV in the Upload section of the online application. In the covering letter you should outline how you match the criteria for the post and why you are applying for this role. You should also outline in up to a page your own analysis of the field of ILC in reproduction. What do we know? What are the big questions? What would you do in the first 3 months if you were given the job? If you upload any additional documents which have not been requested, we will not be able to consider these as part of your application.

Please include details of your referees, including email address and phone number, one of which must be your most recent line manager.
