Tenure‐track, assistant professor of T‐cell immunology

We are looking for a creative and independent researcher/junior group leader able to embed yourself in the Department of Tumor Immunology. You will collaborate on and actively seek out cross‐disciplinary projects within the department and the larger Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS). You will complement the existing research lines of PIs within the department, and open up a new synergisticdirection within the department. Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to: Role of T cells in cancer immunobiology andthe tumor microenvironment in particular, development of novel therapeutic T cell mediatedinterventions exploiting chemical‐ Immunology approaches (ICI). Candidates with a broad interest intumor microenvironment and molecular mechanisms exploited by immune cells are also encouragedto apply. Preferentially, you have a background in fundamental and molecular immunology as well asomics based techniques, extensive experience with T cells both in murine model systems as well as ina human setting, to strengthen the departments profile on tumor immunology research.

We offer
- Employment: 36 hours per week.
- A gross monthly salary in scale 11 or 12 based on a 36‐hour working week. The exact salary
depends on your qualifications and amount of relevant professional experience.
- In addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end‐of‐year bonus.
- Duration of the contract: you will be appointed for a three to four‐year period; after positive
evaluation, you may be offered a permanent contract.


We ask
- You are an enthousiastic and ambitious scientist, hold a PhD in Immunology or related
discipline and have the skills required to conduct research in the field of tumor immunology
and initiate a novel, internationally recognised research line within RIMLS.
- You are an enthusiastic lecturer willing to participate in the educational programmes of the
- You are able to acquire external funding for your research.
- You are interested in the industrial or societal application of your research and willing to
participate in projects of a multidisciplinary nature.

organization profile

We are
The department of Tumor Immunology embedded within the Institute for Molecular Life Sciences
Research within our department aims at a better understanding of our immune system in the fight
against cancer, using molecular‐, cell biological‐ and immunological‐ techniques. Research is centered
around antigen presenting dendritic cells which play an important role in regulating the immune
response. An important activity of the department is the translation of basic research into clinical
application and back. Next to understanding immune cells present in the tumor microenvironment,
we develop novel vaccines and chemical immunology nanomedicines to treat cancer patients.
The Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences in the Netherlands is a leading European research
center providing an outstanding research setting for the Radboud University Medical Center. The
RIMLS focuses on basic science and its translation into pioneering treatments in the clinic. RIMLS
innovations are advanced through technology platforms such as genomics, proteomics, and molecular
