Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoc candidate for a collaborative project between the department of Rheumatology & Clinical Immunology of the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU) and the Immunology Division of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (FVM) of Utrecht University. The project will focus on the therapeutic potential of tolerogenic dendritic cells (tolDCs) as a novel cellular therapy in rheumatoid arthritis. The project's main goal is to answer the critical questions: are tolDCs safe and are they capable of inducing antigen-specific regulatory T cells in humans to such an extent that therapeutic tolerance can be expected in rheumatoid arthritis? The development of immunomonitoring assays for the detection of antigen-specific T cells will be essential for this purpose. These assays can be used as response predictors, and will therefore play an important role in the process of patient selection for this treatment and in measuring responses to tolDC treatment in patients. You will also be involved in setting up of a clinical trial using tolDC therapy to tackle rheumatoid arthritis.

Requirements

You are highly motivated and are interested in restoring immune tolerance, assay development and clinical immunology. You have research experience in the field of immunology, experience in the purificaton and handling of immune cells, advanced experience with flow cytometry, and preferably also experience with dendritic cell cultures. You are accustomed to carrying out internationally competitive research, as demonstrated by scientific publications, experience in successfully designing and developing new experiments, and experience in analyzing and interpreting experimental data. You should have the capacity for creative and original research of the highest impact and the ability to multi-task, organize your own work with minimal supervision, maintain a clear and up-to-date lab notebook, deliver written reports, and communicate results effectively at meetings and conferences. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. This project will involve animal experimentation.

Conditions of employment

For this 100% post, the maximum salary will be € 4.321,00. This will be a temporary appointment for 2 years.

Contract type: Temporary, temporary appointment for 2 years
