The project is funded by the John Templeton Foundation and is part of an international consortium study group that focuses on microchimerism.
We are seeking a colleague with a PhD in biomedical sciences or a related field and with a proven track record of achievement. Experience in the field of immunology is essential. The project involves cell culturing and cloning, flow cytometric analyses and sorting, single-cell RNA sequencing, quantitative PCR, and protein-based assays. Knowledge of molecular biology, as well as genomic research portals and software is desirable. An ideal candidate is able to work independently as well as in a team, has a pro-active attitude and good organizational skills. Excellent communication skills in English are essential.
