A postdoctoral fellow to study biochemistry and function of natural and engineer
Departments of Immunopathology and Experimental Immunohematology are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to investigate how antibodies in different individuals activate the immune system through both cellular- and humoral immunity. This project will be devoted to both antibody engineering, as well as on various biophysical, cellular and humoral immune assays.
This project involves a problem that is relevant for current and future antibody-therapies in humans, which will be tackled with state of the art technologies to unravel them. The research will performed within a multi-disciplinary and enthusiastic team, consisting of senior research teams, other post-docs, PhD students and technicians, but also in close collaboration with the biotechnology industry.
Where you will work:
The Research Division of Sanquin Blood Supply Foundation (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) performs research relating to blood transfusion medicine in its broadest sense and is an integrated division with approximately 250 researchers. The research is performed within the context of the Landsteiner Laboratory of the Academic Medical Center of the University of Amsterdam, and collaborating strongly with Sanquin Diagnostics. The spear points of our research involves, but is not limited to, immunological response against blood group antigens, immune regulation, antigen presentation, T-cell responses, blood coagulation, phagocyte and cell biology. The post-doc will be embedded in a research group presently consisting of 8 PhD students, 4 technicians, one post-doc, and two senior scientists. Part of this project will also carried out together with PhD student.
We are looking for:
- enthusiastic candidate with PhD degree in a relevant field (e.g. Immunology, biochemistry or molecular biology /).
- interest and background in cellular immunology and molecular biology, B cells, antibody structure, function, and the interaction with their receptors.
