Postdoctoral Scientist (Reverse Genetics)

This successful candidate will conduct studies using reverse genetics to understand the role of bluetongue virus (BTV) genetics in determining spread and infection of vectors. BTV has emerged in a series of epidemics in Europe with a substantial economic impact on farming in this region and Pirbright is at the forefront of responses to these incursions, including in its role as EU reference laboratory for the virus.

Postdoctoral Scientist (Phylogenetics)
