The Lymph node stroma group at Uppsala University, Rudbeck laboratory, Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology (IGP), led by Ass. Prof. Maria Ulvmar, invite applications from early stage researchers, within 3 years from their PhD, who wants to develop a career in vascular immunology.
The focus of the projects in the lab is to understand the impact the highly specialized lymph node vasculature has on the structure and function of the lymph node in the regulation of adaptive immune responses, particularly the immune response in cancer disease. The work involve state-of-the-art genetically modified mice, tumor models of cancer metastasis and experimental immunotherapy.

The Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology at Uppsala University (www.igp.uu.se) has a broad research profile with several internationally strong research groups both in cancer, vascular biology and in immunotherapy.
Qualifications: PhD in immunology, vascular biology/immunology, tumor immunology or immunotherapy.
Merits: The ideal candidate has extensive expertise of work with animal models (FELASA C) or equivalent. A solid command of flow cytometry, cell sorting and confocal imaging is an advantage. An interest in method development is essential. Fluency in both written and spoken English is a request.
We are seeking highly motivated and talented researchers with an interest in tackling complex immunological problems. We offer an exciting and collaborative work environment at the forefront of vascular immunology. Positions are available immediately and the reviewing of applications will start right away.
To apply, please send your CV together with the names of three references and a short description of yourself and the motivation to join the group to: email@example.com.
