Prof. Jamie Rossjohn, FRS, NHMRC Investigator Fellow, is seeking research fellows to join the research group at Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Clayton campus, Melbourne, Australia. The selected candidates will work in the field of T cell recognition specifically working on gamma delta T cells.

The Rossjohn Laboratory, as part of a broad collaborative network that includes lead national and international researchers, has provided profound insight into T-cell immunology, specifically defining the basis of key immune recognition events by T-cells. The laboratory has notably pioneered our understanding of lipid-based immunity by the innate Natural Killer T-cells (NKT) and the role of MAIT cells in recognizing vitamin B metabolites.
