Open Post-doc positions in Structural Immunology with a focus on enhanced TCR recognition of MHC molecules at the Science for Life Laboratory
We are currently seeking for two highly motivated and multi-talented post-doctoral fellows to work on a collaborative project in the Achour laboratory within SciLifeLab (SciLifeLab.se). This is an ideal position for a post-doc who is looking to bolster experience and/or publication record for several years before moving to a faculty position.
The selected post-doctoral fellow(s) will focus on determining the three-dimensional structures of T cell receptors in complex with MHC class I or class II, presenting wild-type and altered versions of epitopes related to autoimmune and/or cancerdiseases. The overall aim of the project is to establish and understand the mechanisms underlying enhanced TCR recognition of infected and/or cancer cells, as well as to provide a structural basis for the induction of autoimmune responses.
More information about the Achour group can be found in scilifelab.se
. The positions are available from the beginning of April 2014, and will remain open until filled. The initial appointment is for 1 year. Consideration of applications starts when this advertisement appears.
