  • One ERC-funded postdoctoral position is available in the newly established laboratory of Synthetic Immunology at the University of Padova, Italy. Our lab investigates the interactions between antigen presenting cells and T cells in vivo, with the goal of defining the cellular and molecular determinants shaping the T cell response. Instead of approaching this problem with traditional methods, we seek to develop novel strategies capable of revealing cell-cell communication directly in living animals (Pasqual et al., Nature 2018; Chudnovskiy et al., Current Opinion in Immunology 2019).

    The lab is part of the University of Padova, a dynamic and stimulating multidisciplinary research environment home of more than 2000 scientists distributed across 20 scientific departments. Our institute is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including NGS platforms, high biosafety containment animal facility, advanced flow cytometry and imaging resources. Our research also benefits of a network of international collaborators located in leading institution in Europe and US.

    We offer (i) the opportunity to conduct innovative research using a multidisciplinary approach which combines chemical and molecular biology with in vivo immunology and mouse genetics; (ii) solid funding conditions which will provide long-term support of our research activity; (iii) a competitive salary as well as tax benefits according to the Italian law.

    If you are interested in joining the lab please send your CV, two reference letters and a summary of your research interests to Giulia Pasqual . The position is available immediately, the starting date can be agreed.
