Research Assistant at Imperial College London

Imperial College London has an opening postdoctoral position in molecular biology. Applications are invited up to October 17, 2019.

Dr Male's research group focuses on how innate lymphoid cells are involved in the success of pregnancy. A position for a Research Assistant jointly funded by the Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust, is available immediately and is funded until 13th of September 2020 in the first instance with the possibility for extension dependent on funding.

The lining of the uterus is home to a number of unique immune cell populations, which are thought to play a role in the implantation of the placenta and subsequently in the success of pregnancy. Dr Male has recently discovered a novel strain of mouse, which lacks some of these cells and has difficulty in reproducing. The post holder will investigate the immune and reproductive phenotype of this strain of mouse in detail.

You will be expected to perform high quality research under the direction of Dr Male, and to assist in the day-today running of the laboratory. You will have a BSc (or equivalent) in cell biology, immunology or a related subject, and laboratory experience in molecular biology and mammalian cell culture. Possession of a personal Home Office licence is advantageous, but not required. You will be organised, able to communicate effectively and work closely with Dr Male and other members of the team.

You should have a good first degree in Cell Biology, Immunology or a related subject and/or equivalent. Laboratory experience in molecular biology and mammalian cell culture is required.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published.For more information, see

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
