The work of Francesca Chiodi and her our group aims at understanding mechanisms of T cell damage during HIV infection, including abnormal immune activation and apoptosis of T cells. The causes underlying such dysfunctions are poorly understood but other mechanisms, in addition to direct virus replication, may account for depletion of T cells. We focus on studying the mechanisms leading to immune dysfunctions during HIV infection and how antiretroviral therapy helps to revert the impaired phenotype and function of T cells.
A post-doctoral position is available for a motivated researcher with experience in the field of T cell immunology. The project will be focused on T cell immunology during HIV infection and the effect of antiretroviral therapy on T cell function.
The work will be mostly conducted at the Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology of the Karolinska Institutet.
A person is eligible for a position as Postdoctoral Researcher if he or she has obtained a PhD no more than seven years before the last date of employment as postdoc. The term can be extended under special circumstances.
The person to be employed has experience in the field of T cell immunology and infection immunology. The candidate masters advanced flow cytometry techniques and molecular biology methods.
This is a temporary position up to 24 months.
An employment application must contain the following documents in English or Swedish:
