  • Collaborate within ongoing projects aimed at developing novel immunization platforms
  • Contribute to the scientific community by presenting work at international conferences as well as publishing manuscripts
  • Gain experience in a rigorous laboratory setting while also obtaining valuable industry experience

  • Suitable candidates will have a PhD in immunology, cell biology or a related field with an additional 2 years’ experience in relevant research. 
  • Required expertise in cell biology, flow cytometry, and immune phenotyping.
  • Experience in molecular biology and sequence alignment is required.
  • Experience in biostatistics is desired.
  • The candidate should work independently on research projects, and be a creative and independent thinker.
