POSTDOC POSITION: TUMOR IMMUNOLOGY

UMC Utrecht, Centre for Molecular Medicine
full time

Approximately 50% of all human colorectal tumors develop distant metastases. Surgery for metastatic disease remains the only hope for cure. Systemic therapies, including chemotherapy and EGFR- and VEGF targeting antibodies have prolonged median overall survival to approximately 2 years, but have little effect on long-term survival. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are currently being tested for their therapeutic value and are expected to improve long-term survival. Such therapies may also be effective in other subtypes, possibly as part of combination treatment strategies. Unfortunately, the immune-suppressive activity of tumor-associated Treg cells represents a major hurdle for effective antitumor immunity, but highlighting their potential as an immunotherapeutic target. For this reason, there is considerable interest in the possible synergistic opportunities of combining Treg cell-targeted therapies with other modalities, such as immune checkpoint blockade, immune agonists, tumor-specific vaccines, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. However, increased knowledge into mechanisms underlying Treg accumulation, function, and their role in metastasis and therapy resistance needs to be gained before such approaches can be clinically tested. Rational design of such strategies in CRC requires a thorough understanding of the tumor-immune niche, and in particular the role of T regulatory (Treg) cells which is currently lacking. Here, through the isolation and characterization of CRC-associated Treg cells together with the development and application of novel organoid based in vitro model systems for studying Treg cell-tumor interactions, we will advance our understanding of the tumor-immune niche. This information can be used to test and develop novel treatment strategies against CRC tumors. A major aim of the work is to translate fundamental research results into clinically useful tools and novel therapeutic strategies.

Postdoc B-T cell immunity (I&V-IIV-051)

National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), Centre for Immunology of Infectious Diseases and Vaccines
Post-Doc

Understanding a normal B cell response is of great importance. Malfunctioning of this response can lead to uncontrolled B cell proliferation and differentiation, and formation of autoreactive or malignant B cell memory and (auto)antibodies. You will investigate the initiation of human B cell immunity after infection and vaccination. You will dissect which molecular and cellular key factors regulate the activation and differentiation of antigen-specific B cells. The focus will be to unravel B-T cell interactions. Your research will use unique clinical infection- or vaccination-cohorts, or population wide cohorts. You will investigate the effects of age and pre-existing antibodies on B cell responses. You will use cell isolation, in vitro cell culture and differentiation systems, multicolour flow cytometry and antibody assays, as well as biomarker analyses at a protein-, RNA- and (epi)genetic-level. In addition, you will provide input on new projects focusing on immunological topics that are relevant for the public health and the national immunization program.

Postdoctoral Fellowship

University of Alberta, neurovirology and neuroimmunolog

A position for a postdoctoral fellow is available to individuals with a PhD, MD or DVM at the University of Alberta to study neurovirology and neuroimmunology with a focus on pathogenesis, particularly innate immune mechanisms underlying multiple sclerosis (MS) and HIV-associated neurological syndromes, using established in vitro and in vivo models for these diseases with close links to the corresponding MS and NeuroHIV Clinics.

PhD vacancy: Targeting immunometabolism in tumour-associated macrophages

VU University Medical Center, Moleculer Cell Biology and Immunology
PhD

Your work environment Within the department of Molecular Cell Biology and Immunology at VU University Medical Center (VUmc, Amsterdam), our group studies the metabolic characteristics and requirements of macrophages. This project incorporates fundamental research questions as well as translational applications in in vivo models, human in vitro models and analysis of glioblastoma patient material with the ultimate goal to translate our findings to the clinic. You will work in a team with young and enthusiastic researchers, who have expertise in immunology, biochemistry, cell biology, cancer and cardiovascular disease. This CCA (Cancer Center Amsterdam) project will be performed in close collaboration with Dr. J. J. Garcia Vallejo and Prof. Y. van Kooyk.
