In the frame of an FRM-funded project, a postdoctoral position is available in
the “Allergy and Autoimmunity group” at the Institut Pasteur for studies in
neutrophil biology/autoimmunity. The work will aim to dissect the role of
neutrophils in the onset and propagation of antibody-driven autoimmunity, with
a focus on immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). The successful candidate will
develop to this aim a new mouse model of ITP for the in-depth
characterization of neutrophil involvement in the disease and their
interactions with autoantibody-producing B cells. Phenotypical and functional
analysis of human neutrophils from ITP patients will complement the work.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, independent, and innovative candidate who
works well in a team and is eager to drive this translational project forward.
Candidates must hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D. or MD) in immunology or
related fields. Highly motivated candidates with a strong background in
immunology, molecular biology, and/or genetics and substantial experience with
flow cytometry and in vivo mouse models are encouraged to apply. Previous
experience in conducting and analyzing neutrophil or platelet functions or
scRNA-seq experiments is an asset. Good communication skills and fluency in
English are essential.
Successful candidates will join an interdisciplinary and collaborative team
with long-standing expertise in antibody-driven afflictions and the analysis
of mouse models of human diseases.
The position is available starting from December 2022 for an initial period of
12 months with secured funding for up to 24 months.
Interested candidates should send before September 20th a cover letter with a
brief description of research experience, interests, and accomplishments,
their CV, and letters of support or the names and contact information for two
