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