15P-38Research Assistant Immunological Tool BoxThe Pirbright Institute carries out research on a number of major viral diseases of animals through the three major research programmes including the Avian Viral Diseases (AVD) programme that focuses of diseases affecting poultry. Research areas on each of the diseases cover aspects of pathogen biology, virus-host interactions and immune responses, with the aim of developing better control methods through improved tools (vaccines and diagnostics) and intervention strategies. Following the recent decision that research in the Avian Viral Immunology group is not relocating to Pirbright, there is the need for taking stock of the Avian Immunology Toolbox and other resources currently in that laboratory. This new post on a one year limited term contract is created to meet this requirement. PDF06-08-2015
