The Boehm group addresses a number of cutting-edge research questions related to the development and evolution of the vertebrate immune system.

About the position:
  • Candidates are expected to have experience both in bioinformatic analyses of transcriptome and genome data, and in general immunological techniques and animal handling, including tissue transplantation.
  • The positions are open immediately and initially funded for two years.
  • The work will focus on the characterization of immune systems in non-model organisms.
  • The selected candidate will work in close collaboration with the group´s scientists, who address several aspects of the lamprey immune system.
  • The candidate will have access to the core facilities of the institute, including an excellent sequencing facility.
  • Project 1 focuses on the haematopoietic system of lampreys.
  • Project 2 concerns the analysis of the immune system of teleosts.
