Predoctoral Researcher at University of Ghent

University of Ghent, Belgium is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position in molecular biology. Applicants should apply before November 18, 2019.

We are looking for a talented and motivated student to start a PhD-project in the team of Prof. Lars Vereecke. The lab is studying host-microbiota interactions in mouse models of inflammatory disease and cancer, using state-of-the-art germfree and gnotobiotic technology. We are very much interested in the interaction between in intestinal microbiota and the immune system, during the development of inflammatory disease and cancer. The project involves multiple molecular biology techniques and inflammation assays (e.g. Elisa, QPCR, histology), cellular immunology (flow cytometry), microscopy and microbiology assays. Unraveling the underlying molecular mechanisms underlying host microbiota interactions in health and disease can open perspectives for novel (microbiota based) therapies for inflammatory disease and cancer. The lab of Prof. Lars Vereecke is part of the Ugent/VIB Center for Inflammation Research (IRC) - Belgium, and located at the Ghent University Hospital campus (MRBII – UZ Ghent).

The candidate must meet the eligibility criteria to apply for a personal FWO PhD fellowship (fundamental research or strategic basic research – please consult the FWO website) and have a Felasa B or C degree for experimental animal research. The candidate must have obtained excellent grades during his/her master training, be a critical thinker, highly motivated and perseverant.

Please contact Prof. Lars Vereecke ( for more information regarding the PhD project. Candidates can sent their CV and cover letter by email to Prof. Lars Vereecke as soon as possible, and no later than November 11th 2019.
