Dr. Damian Perez Mazliah’s laboratory, part of both Hull York Medical School and recently created York Biomedical Research Institute, is now looking for an experienced Research Technician to join the team. The Perez Mazliah’s lab investigates the underlying immune drivers of infectious heart disease. For this, the lab combines in vivo models of Trypanosoma cruzi infection (cause of Chagas disease) with in vivo imaging, flow cytometry, single-cell RNA sequencing and spatial transcriptomics, among other technologies. The lab is particularly interested in understanding molecular and cellular signatures of parasite-specific, autoreactive cardiac-specific and heart-resident B cells. The lab also has strong collaborative links with research groups based in Chagas disease endemic countries from South America (Argentina, Brazil).
The successful candidate will join a young and vibrant mechanistic immunology research laboratory and will help with running experiments using mostly mouse models of infection and heart disease, supporting PI, PhDs and postdocs in the team. Depending on experience, the candidate will also have the opportunity to develop and lead specific projects within the team and be part of publications (including lead author depending on contribution). The position is initially advertised for 24 months with a possible extension depending on performance. Candidates with a MSc and/or PhD are encouraged to apply.
