Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


A PhD studentship
is available to study helminth modulation of allergic responses in the
Inflammation and Immunity Research group in Trinity College
Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. The Inflammation and Immunity Research team is
based in well-equipped laboratories in the Institute of Molecular
Medicine, School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin. The Institute of Molecular Medicine is a new state-of-the-art facility devoted to basic and translational research.

The project will involve investigation of the immunological mechanism
that helminths use to suppress allergic inflammation (Fallon and
Mangan, Nature Rev Immunol 2007). The student will focus on
characterizing helminth immune modulating molecules and analysis of
their function (Smith et al., J Exp Med 2005; Fallon and Alcami, Trends
Immunol 2006). Applicants should have experience in basic molecular
biology or cell biology.

The studentship is funded for 3 years by Science Foundation Ireland
commencing October 2008. The closing date for applications is Friday,
8th August.

To apply please email a brief cover letter and a PDF copy of CV along
with names and contact information for 2 referees to immunol[ at ]

Deadline: Friday, 8th August, 2008
