The candidate will incorporate into a project focused on the identification of predictive biomarkers to biologic therapies in inflammatory bowel disease by cytometry. The researcher will characterize the phenotype of the components of immune system on biological samples from patients with Crohn´s disease and ulcerative colitis to identify novel biomarkers of response to treatment.
Requirements of the candidate:
• University Degree in Life Sciences
• Competitive curriculum (stay in a foreign research group, number and quality of publications, participation in research projects and other merits).
• Strong background and demonstrable experience in cell biology, cell isolations (mainly from tissue and blood), cell culture and multi-parameter flow cytometry. Desirable previous experience in mucosal immunology.
Those interested candidates must send an updated CV and a letter of interest stating your previous experience via e-mail to: Montse Baldan Martin: email@example.com. Please indicate in the subject of the email the reference “Cell biology postdoc position”.
