Post-doctoral Fellow position in T cell biology/cancer immunotherapy

Related image

Cancer immunotherapy has experienced major breakthroughs over the last decade with the discoveries that the patient’s own cytotoxic T cells possess the ability to react against cancer cells and that unleash of immunosuppressive signals by blocking antibodies can lead to impressive clinical outcome. However, many cancer patients do not respond to immunotherapy. One possible reason is that T cells in the tumor are suppressed by other known or yet unknown components in the tumor microenvironment.

The project will be based on in vitro (human) and in vivo mouse studies of T cells using several of the following methods: flow cytometry, xCelligence, Seahorse/metabolic studies, gene silencing by siRNA, real-time qPCR, Western blotting, mRNA transfection and/or viral transduction of T cells, co-culture studies, and FACS sorting of cells for downstream functional and molecular analyses.

Post-doctoral Fellow position in Tumour Immunology/Osteoimmunology

Centre of Molecular Inflammation Research (SFF-CEMIR)

A post-doctoral research position is available in the lab of Prof. Therese Standal, a group leader at CEMIR.

The project is focused on the crosstalk between malignant plasma cells, T-cells and bone cells, and how infection and inflammation modulate this interplay. The work will be a combination of cell biological and biochemical work to decipher molecular mechanisms and in vivo experiments utilizing different mouse models of multiple myeloma.

The period of employment for the position is 2 years from March 1st 2019.
