The lab of Prof. Jim Kaufman at the University of Edinburgh is looking for a Research Technician to help us understand how chicken MHC molecules have such profound effects on resistance and susceptibility to economically-important diseases. We will begin by using protein expression systems and biochemical methods to produce reagents for identifying antigen-specific T lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cells.
You will join the research team with many years of experience with MHC molecules and now a unique set of viral peptides that allow us to produce peptide-MHC tetramers for flow cytometric analysis of vaccinated and infected chickens. Such analyses will revolutionise our understanding of important poultry diseases.
