Role of scavenger receptor dysfunction in the development of chronic inflammation

A Postdoctoral Research Scientist is required to undertake a project investigating the role of the macrophage haemoglobin-haptoglobin scavenger receptor CD163 in chronic human inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. We are seeking to understand the role of corticosteroids in regulating the clearance of haemoglobin-derived iron from sites of inflammation as a potentially important anti-inflammatory mechanism. Practical experience in a range of biochemical and immunological techniques are required including immunostaining, immunoblotting and cell culture. Training in flow cytometry will be provided if necessary.

Enthusiasm and the ability to work efficiently as part of a team are essential attributes. You will need to have the ability to work independently, but intellectual participation with the principal investigator and active supervision will be provided.

The post is available from 1st July 2004 for a period of 2 years in the first instance with the possibility of renewal as funds allow. The work will be carried out with Dr Nick Goulding in the Centre for Biochemical Pharmacology, Charterhouse Square.
