PhD Student position

One PhD student position is available to work on immune regulation, lineage commitment and

function of innate lymphoid cells (ILC).

PhD student position

The laboratory of Daniela Finke has a long-standing research focus on innate lymphoid cells (ILCs),

which produce cytokines regulating immune responses, inflammation and tissue repair. Current

research on ILC subsets is dramatically changing our knowledge on lymphocyte lineage relation-

ship, collaboration of innate and adaptive immune cells and immune homeostasis.

The PhD project is on pathways controlling activation and differentiation of ILCs during steady state

and inflammatory conditions. New regulatory pathways in ILC differentiation and function are

currently tested using state-of-the-art technologies in cell and molecular biology, viral gene delivery

systems (gain and loss of function), imaging and in vivo mouse models (inflammation, microbial

exposure, nutrition).

Candidates should bring a particular expertise in cell and molecular biology and have a strong back-

ground in immunology. Experience in flow cytometry, imaging and in vivo experiments with mice

would be an advantage.

The Department of Biomedicine Basel offers very attractive state-of-the art facilities in immunology,

life sciences and internationally renowned scientific environments. Our research is affiliated to the

Pediatric University Hospital, which allows us to develop new paths from bench to bedside. For

further information see our web-page: http://biomedizin.unibas.ch/home/.

Interested candidates should send an application by email together with

curriculum vitae, a list of publications and the names and contact information of

three possible referees to.
