The Finke laboratory at University of Basel is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist to investigate tissue-specific immune functions of innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) in health and disease. The lab has a long-standing interest in ILC biology. The focus of our current research is to better understand the molecular mechanisms of tissue-specific ILC functions.
About the position:
- Investigate ILC-mediated immunoregulatory networks, ILC interactions with other immune cells and tissue stromal cells
- Answering basic research questions with a relationship to human diseases
- Applicant must hold PhD or MD/PhD in immunology, cell or molecular biology or similar discipline
- Proven expertise in two or more of the following: in vivo experimental immunology, multi-colour flow cytometry, cell imaging, advanced primary cell and organ culture, ‘omics (RNA-seq, ChIP-Seq, etc.)
- Hands-on knowledge of experimental mouse models
- Evidence of productivity from publications in peer-reviewed research journals originating from PhD or postdoctoral work
- Excellent organization skills, self-motivation and creativity
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English
- Knowledge in bioinformatics (programming and handling of big data) is a plus.
- Due to work permit issues, a current resident of Switzerland or a legal resident of EU countries is preferred
Applications to be sent as 1 pdf file via email to Martha.Gaio@unibas.ch. The application must include:
- Motivation letter with a brief description of past scientific achievements
- Recent CV (with publication record)
- 03 independent references (with full address, email and telephone number).
