IMMUNONET Basic science network day at Novo Nordisk Fonden

On the 12th of September, 2019 IMMUNONET will host a Basic science network day at Novo Nordisk
Fonden, Tuborg Havnevej 19, 2900 Hellerup.

The topic will be “New leads in Cancer Immunotherapy”. We will have a keynote speaker at 13:00.

Poster presentations will be in focus, we therefore call for young scientist in the field of immunooncology
to submit abstracts in the categories:

1. ‘New targets/new leads’
2. ‘Translational IO’
3. ‘Immunotechnologies’
4. ‘Biomarkers’

Abstracts will be selected for a short on‐site poster presentation of 4 minutes.

Postdoc position in the Precision Vaccines Laboratory, Harvard Institutes of Medicine, Boston, USA

We seek a skilled and motivated post-doctoral scientist with background in Immunology (experience in T and B lymphocyte studies a plus), Vaccinology, and/or Systems Biology to lead a project on development of novel adjuvanted vaccines. We are funded by NIH/NIAID via an Adjuvant Discovery and Development Program contracts, a UO1 grant on adjuvant synergy and a U19 Human Immunology Project Consortium (HIPC) award to study systems vaccinology. Studies will employ in vitro modeling of human newborn, adult and elderly antigen-presenting cells, T and B lymphocytes, small molecule screens, medicinal chemistry, adjuvant formulation as well as in vivo animal and human studies and big data “OMIC” technologies, to identify and develop adjuvants that enhance immune responses of those at the extremes of age.

Assistant professor (tenure track) / Associate professor in Medical Biotechnology at Aarhus University

The Biological and Chemical Engineering Section (BCE) at Department of Engineering ( Aarhus University, invites applications for assistant professor (tenure track) or associate professor positions in Medical Biotechnology.

Working area
The main activity will be research within the area of biotechnology in the context of health-related applications and production of biological molecules. Interactions with departmental Technology programs and the AU interdisciplinary thematic centres(iFOOD, CBIO, WATEC, phyLife) are encouraged.

Focus areas are within biomolecules and cellular technologies. Hence, research activities will include one (or several) of the following topics:

  • Protein biotechnology: biomolecules for advanced intervention/diagnostics/prophylaxis
  • Precision medical research
  • Vaccine technologies
  • Evolutive and screening technologies
  • Biomedical cell technologies: stem cell and cell factories
  • Genome editing within higher cells and organisms: manipulation and modification of cellular pathways
  • Microbiome research in health and disease
  • Carbohydrate Biotechnology (tailoring and optimizing carbohydrates and glycans)
