Vacancy Postdoctoral Fellowship: Single Cell Immunology
The South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative performs cutting edge clinical and immunological research in TB pathogenesis, biomarker development and clinical vaccine development. We have recently embarked on a project that aims to understand TB immunopathology and particularly tissue-specific immune responses in a range of clinical TB phenotypes.
We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in single cell immunology. The successful candidate will perform single cell RNA sequencing and mass cytometry assays on samples collected postmortem from humans as part of a multi-center study.
The fellow will be based in Cape Town, but the project may include activity-related travel to collaborating institutes. The successful candidate will contribute to design, development, and performance of laboratory work and computational data analyses. For more information on SATVI, visit www.satvi.uct.ac.za.
