Currently we are expanding our efforts to identify and characterize novel inhibitory receptors. For this project, we will need to validate protein expression and function of multiple putative inhibitory receptors. You will be responsible for the generation of tools such as recombinant proteins, antibodies, etc, to study these receptors. For this, you will work independently and collaborate with multiple scientists in our team . Experience with molecular techniques (cloning), and ÄKTA are a pre-requisite.
The laboratory for Immune regulation is hosted in the in the Laboratory of Translational Immunology (LTI) at the UMC Utrecht, and part of the Oncode Institute. Our group is composed of an international team of researchers, and has a long history in the identification and characterisation of inhibitory immune receptors. We are interested in the biology of these inhibitory receptors in health and disease (i.e. cancer and autoimmunity) and perform basic and translational studies in vitro and in vivo with the aim to : translate these findings into the clinics.
The LTI is a well-facilitated department with experts in all fields of immunology, and is embedded in the focus area ‘Infection and Immunology’ of the UMC Utrecht. We are structured to facilitate bench-to-bed side research. We have a state-of-the-art flow cytometry, imaging and antibody development facility (UMAB) and ample experience in protein production though our protein facility.
Trained at HLO (hoger laboratorium onderwijs; university of applied sciences) level, or equivalent
Experience in molecular cloning and protein purification.
Work independently and on multiple projects at the same time.
Communicate in English at a sufficient level to discuss your results and follow-up plans.
Affinity with immunology
Permit to perfom animal experiments, and the willingness to do so.
The maximum salary for this position (100%) is € 3.184,00 gross per month based on full-time employment (work week 36 hours). This job is based on a temporary position for 2 years.
In addition, we offer an annual benefit of 8.3%, holiday allowance, travel expenses and career opportunities. The terms of employment are in accordance with the Cao University Medical Centers (UMC).
