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.

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.

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).

Postdoctoral scientist in cancer immunotherapy, Germany

Postdoctoral scientist in cancer immunotherapy (PhD, MD, pharmacist,
veterinarian or equivalent) (male/female)

Scope of the project:
We offer an exciting position in the field of tumor immunology in a highly clinically relevant research area. The focus of the group Immunopharmacology (head: PD Dr. Sebastian Kobold) is the development of new anti-tumoral immunotherapies. The postdoc will develop a novel strategy for cell-based therapy of cancer. The project is embedded in the doctoral programi-Target (Immunotargeting of Cancer) of the Elite Network of Bavaria (www.immunotarget.de) and in the Marie-Sklodowska Curie Network IMMUTRAIN, funded by the European Union.

The Division of Clinical Pharmacology (director: Prof. Stefan Endres; www.klinischepharmakologie.de) hosts doctoral students, physicians and postdocs in a young team at an internationally competitive level (Hornung et al. Science 2006; Poeck et al. Nat Med 2008 and Nat Immunol 2010; Hoffmann et al. J Hepatol 2014, Kobold et al., J Natl Cancer Inst 2015a and 2015b, Voigt et al., PNAS 2017). The Division has full training capacities and clearance for the medical board specialities clinical pharmacology and immunology.

PhD fellowship/scholarship at Graduate School of Health, Aarhus University, Denmark.

During this project you will study events taking place during activation of the immune system. The project will combine studies on immune responses to defined nanoscale ligand patterns with the use of Single-cell RNA sequencing. Sequencing by Drop-seq allows analyses of gene expression in thousands of individual cells in a single experiment; in this project primarily B-cells will be the main cell of interest. The project will focus on the characterization of immune responses following exposure of the immune system to model antigens. The antigens in question will be generated using nanotechnologies with specific patterning of B-cell ligands. The experiments will involve in vitro experiments on presentation of such patterns to transgenic or knock-in B-cells combined with in vivo studies, including but not limited to the B1-8/NP system.
