Postdoc Position in Immunology-Inflammatory Bowel Disease

A postdoc position is available in biology at Technical University of Denmark. The duration of this scholarship is 3 years. This position is available for all students around the world. Applications are invited up to February 13, 2015. 

A postdoctoral position is available in the Mucosal Immunology group headed by Professor William Agace at the Section of Immunology and Vaccinology, at the Danish Technical University, Veterinary Institute, Fredriksberg. The research group focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating immune homeostasis, infection and inflammation in the intestinal tract with a particular interest in the impact of dendritic cells and stromal elements in the regulation of adaptive immunity.

The successful candidate will join a team of collaborative groups with expertise in state-of-the-art animal models, proteomics, systems biology and clinical gastroenterology to assess the mechanisms regulating regionalized immunity along the length of the intestinal tract.

The postdoctoral fellow will work with patient material including intestinal biopsies and surgical material to study the phenotype and function of human dendritic cell subsets and their cross-talk with human stromal elements in the steady state and setting of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The project will involve close collaboration with clinical gastroenterologists, as well as other members of the team including experts in proteomics, bioinformatics and systems biology.

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union.

The laboratory is located in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen at the DTU Vet Campus with expected move to Lyngby Campus late 2016.

The period of employment is 3 years (with the possibility of an extension).

Application Requirements
The candidate should be highly motivated, have the ability to work independently but also enjoy contributing and working within a team. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D in the biomedical sciences including documented training in immunology, with prior experience in working with human primary cells, immuno-phenotyping (multi-color flow cytometry), molecular biology and in vitro cell culture. Prior experience of working with human surgical and biopsy material is beneficial as is basic knowledge in bioinformatics.
