Job description:

We focus on innovative approaches to stimulation of innate immunity in tumor tissue in order to enhance anti-tumor immunity. We focus on cytosolic nucleic acid sensor pathways, in particular the cGAS/STING axis, that induce potent IFN and NFkB responses and have been shown to be critical for immune control of cancer under treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors. We use state-of-the-art mouse models to modulate innate immunity in combination with pharmacological approaches to investigate the effect on immunological tumor control in vivo.

A successful candidate will use

  • flow cytometry
  • genetic engineering (CRISPR, recombineering)
  • cell culture
  • mouse genetics, conditional gene targeting
  • mouse in vivo tumor models
  • transcriptomics

 

Your profile:

We are looking for a dedicated and enthusiasthic PhD or MD, experienced in life science research, preferably in immunology, with the following skills:

  • experiences with some the afore-mentioned technology (not mandatory)
  • experience in writing scientific publications and grants is of value
