SSI General Assembly

This year the SSI General Assembly will take place in Amsterdam during the ECI meeting:

General Assembly: Room 6 Tuesday 4/9 13.15-14.30

This will be posted on the SSI webpage and the agenda will be posted there before the meeting.

Postdoc in basic mechanisms in primary immunodeficiency

A Three-year position as postdoc at the Department of Biomedicine, Aarhus University, is open for appointment from October 1, 2018 or soon thereafter.

The innate immune system is the first barriers to infections. Patients with genetic defects in the innate immune system exhibit selective susceptibility to infections. We are using gene-modified mouse strains harboring disease-causing mutations identified in patients, and mouse models for virus infections to uncover the mechanisms leading to infectious diseases in genetically predisposed individuals. The work will include a panel of cutting-edge methods including immunohistochemistry, laser capture micro dissection, and RNA sequencing. This will be combined with in vitro work, based on e.g. human stem cell-derived cells.

Deadline
All applications must be made online and received by: 31.07.2018.

Postdoc position in CRISPR technology and immunology

A Three-year position as postdoc at the Department of Biomedicine, Aarhus University, is open for appointment from October 1, 2018 or soon thereafter.

The position is associated with a larger program on innate immunology and virus infections. The successful candidates will be working on a project addressing the mechanisms governing cell death during virus infections and immune-signaling. For this purpose, we will use genome-wide CRISPR screens, cell culture systems, molecular biology/biochemistry, and mouse infection models.

Deadline
All applications must be made online and received by: 31.07.2018

EUROPEAN NETWORK OF B-CELL IMMUNOLOGISTS

Recently, an initiative was started to establish a European network of B cell immunologists, to optimize the use of resources, exchange research ideas, train young people as experts in B cell immunology, start cooperations, and establish research groups funded by the European Union. EFIS has approved the application by Hans-Martin Jack (Germany), Rita Carsetti (Italy) and Idit Shachar (Israel) and will support the initiative for the next 4 years. The first meeting will likely be July 1-4, 2018 at the Michel Hotel in Landshut, Germany. During this first meeting, the goals and the format of future meetings (length, target group, locations etc) will be discussed and only group leaders (~80) from European countries will be invited. Therefore, the member countries should list the different groups working on B cells. Group leaders in the Denmark in the field of B cell biology who are interested in this initiative, please contact Søren Degn (sdegn@biomed.au.dk).
