We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic scientist with the following competencies and experience: Essential experience and skills:
- You have a PhD in a field of medical sciences including immunology, molecular biology or genetics.
- You are highly experienced in flow cytometry, RNA-Sequencing, and have experience with mouse models of disease or human tissue sample preparation and analysis.
- You have an active interest in allergies, autoimmune diseases, fluorescence microscopy, antigen discovery, genetics of immune loci.
- Proficient communication skills and an ability to work in teams.
- Excellent English skills.
- Experience in research communication, demonstrable by a track record of publications, oral/poster presentations, fellowships or grants awarded.
- Experience/knowledge of next generation sequencing and downstream data analysis.
- Experience in tissue sample analysis by flow cytometry and microscopy and/or RNA/DNA preparation, handling and downstream assays.
- Experience/knowledge in B and T cell receptor genetics, protein production and engineering. An interest or knowledge of antigen discovery platforms is also beneficial.
We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic postdoctoral scientist to commence March 2023 or as soon as possible. The applicant will be working towards understanding the role of B and T cells in complex disorders of the skin including atopic dermatitis and psoriasis as part of the Skin Immunology Research Centre. Information on the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center can be found at https://sic.ku.dk/. This project will require interdisciplinary approaches, which will be facilitated by the group’s strong international network of collaborators and an emphasis on teamwork. Your job We strive for someone that can implement big picture projects and work together with people of different backgrounds and with different skill sets. The applicant would be expected to perform sophisticated wet lab experiments, analyse complex datasets, conceptualise novel questions in the field of allergies and autoimmunity and develop new experimental approaches to probe B cell and T cell functions. Specific tasks would include but are not limited to: Setting up RNA-Sequencing (bulk and single cell) pipelines in the lab – with the help of the core facility at the centre; Analysing RNA-Sequencing data using the latest pipelines and software; processing mouse/human skin tissues and analysis by multiparameter flow cytometry; data analysis and presentations at group, local and international meetings.
