Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Experimental Pathology of ACKR1: 2 positions (William Harvey Research Institute, Queen Mary University of London, UK).

Professor Antal Rot   12-09-2018     London, UK.  


Professor Antal Rot is an internationally recognised pioneer investigator studying functions of chemokines and their receptors with particular focus on the mechanisms guiding their diverse pathophysiological roles. His group at the Centre of Microvascular Research, WHRI and CiTI uses modern tools of experimental pathology and immunology to uncover the multifaceted contributions of the atypical chemokine receptors to immunity and disease pathogenesis.

In this context, supported by the Wellcome Trust Investigator Award to Professor Antal Rot, we are seeking to recruit 2 postdoctoral researchers who will conduct ground-braking world-class research on the contribution of ACKR1 expression in the erythroid compartment of the bone marrow to the pathophysiology of haematopoiesis and downstream effects in infection, inflammatory diseases and cancer.

PhD position: Molecular and Cellular Analysis of PCD (Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia) Pathology (Leuven, The Netherlands)

Prof. dr. Sofie Struyf   13-07-2018     Leuven, The Netherlands  


The Laboratory for Molecular Immunology (Rega Institute, Faculty of Medicine, KU Leuven) is hiring a talented PhD student for translational research. We aim to unravel the role of (chemotactic) cytokines in inflammatory reactions and pathologies such as cancer, auto-inflammation and genetic diseases.

Primary ciliary dyskinesia or PCD is caused by genetic defects in the proteins of motile cilia. Patients with PCD suffer from recurrent respiratory infections due to impaired mucociliary clearance of the airways. The currently applied treatments for PCD are based on guidelines for treatment of patients with more common respiratory diseases, such as cystic fibrosis (CF), which symptomatically relate to PCD.

The PhD student will investigate the immunological aspects of the disease at a molecular and cellular level under supervision of Prof. S. Struyf and M. Boon.

Deadline: August 26, 2018.

2 PhD positions within the EU Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN). Laboratory of Translational Immunology. University Medical Center (Utrecht, Netherlands).

Dr. José Borghans   12-07-2018     Utrecht, The Netherlands  


QuanTII: Quantitative T-cell Immunology and Immunotherapy:
We are looking for two PhD students in experimental immunology, who are interested in interdisciplinary immunological research on the quantification of lymphocyte turnover and diversity. This project is part of an EU Marie-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN), which brings together 15 international experimental and theoretical partners from private and academic institutions to work on the topic of T-cell Immunology and Immunotherapy. Our goal is to determine how long-term T-cell memory is maintained, by which subsets of memory T cells, in which sites of the body, how long these cells live, and where most of them are produced. We will use state-of-the-art techniques including stable isotope labelling to study the in vivo kinetics of lymphocytes and barcoded T-cell receptor (TCR) sequencing to study the repertoire composition of the memory T-cell pool.

Deadline: August 18, 2018.
