Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1, UCD School of Medicine/Charles Institute of Dermatology - 011722

(36 months)

UCD - University College Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

Position Summary

The UCD Charles Institute of Dermatology has an ongoing research programme led by Prof. Des Tobin to investigate the biology of hair growth. Applications are invited for a 3-year Postdoctoral research position to conduct a specified programme of research under the supervision and direction of Prof. Des Tobin.

The primary purpose of the role is to examine the triggers for auto-inflammatory events in the complex immune-mediated non-scarring hair loss disorder Alopecia Areata. Specifically, the project will be focused on the identification of so-called auto-antigens to which the immune system in patients with Alopecia areata appears to be inappropriately directed. Knowledge and research experience of both humoral and cell-mediated immunology in the context of autoimmune disease is expected. Candidates with laboratory research experience using human skin are preferred. For detection and identification of disease-relevant autoantigens, a range of biomedical techniques will be employed both for autoantibodies and autoreactive T cell populations using blood and tissues.

Candidates will have excellent current knowledge of the literature in the field; maintain accurate and comprehensive experimental records with excellent attention to detail; assist in preparing presentations and reports as required; maintain laboratory equipment and facilities, and other duties associated with the research project, of an occasional nature, which may be assigned by the Principal Investigator, Prof. Des Tobin.
