The Department of Laboratory Medicine is one of six departments at Lund University's Faculty of Medicine. We conduct leading research, both broad and specialised, within the field of laboratory medicine, focusing on the onset of disease and how we can improve diagnostics and treatment for patients. Some of our strongest areas with world-class research deal with cancer, genetics and blood. The Cell Reprogramming in Hematopoiesis and Immunity group is now recruiting a full-time PhD student that will work in the project of Harnessing Dendritic Cell Reprogramming to Elucidate Mechanisms of Tumor Immunity. The group focuses on cell reprogramming, hematopoiesis, and the development of cell and gene immunotherapeutic strategies.

Work duties The main objectives for the doctoral candidate will be to conduct research education, which includes participation in and development of research projects but also to master graduate courses and state-of-the-art techniques. The majority of this work must be done independently and in collaboration with both internal and external members of the research group.

The position contains work on the development of a novel direct reprogramming strategy of tumor cells into antigen presenting cells. The goal is to utilize the technology developed in vitro to 1) uncover new regulators of cross- presentation, 2) test this approach to identify neoantigens and 3) test the efficacy of in vivo reprogramming. The successful candidate will be performing molecular cloning, lentiviral productions, work with mouse models, and also support the group by performing general laboratory organization and administration.

Qualifications The following is required for the position:

  • A MSc degree in Biochemistry, biomedicine or similar.
  • Knowledge on molecular cloning techniques.
  • Knowledge on lentiviral particle generation.

  • Very good skills in English.
  • Great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities. We are searching for applicants with good collaboration skills, drive and independence, as well as how the applicant, through his or her experience and competence, is judged to have the ability needed to complete the doctoral program.

    Merits for the employment are:

  • Good knowledge of the cellular reprogramming or cancer immunotherapy
  • Fields Experience in animal handling
  • Ability to work independent
  • The project is interdisciplinary and therefore candidates with a broad competence profile will be of particular interest.
