Graduate student positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Simona Stäger. The lab research interest lies on the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating the development and maintenance of host immunity during infection. Examples of our past work include Carmona-Pérez et al, JCI Insight 2023; Fabié et al, Cell Reports 2018; Hammami et al, PLoS Pathogens 2017; Silva-Barrios et al, Cell Reports 2016.
The selected candidates will investigate the transcriptional regulation underlying the differentiation and maintenance of specific CD4 T cell subsets in different tissues during chronic infection in mice.
We are seeking dynamic, collaborative, and highly motivated individuals with a specific interest for immunology and infectious diseases.
Candidates should hold a BSc or MSc in basic biological sciences. A background in immunology is preferred but not necessary.
Prior lab experience in the following approaches is an asset:
- Animal work
- Bioinformatics/genomic analysis
- Flow cytometry
