The successful candidate will use genetic (NGS/omics) and immunological assays (FACS/Elispot) to study immune responses in mice, vaccination with different types of genetic and protein-based vaccines to identify the vaccine, vaccine combination or immunotherapy that give rise to antiviral immune responses. Applicants will work with animal models and in vitro cultivation of viruses. The group has extensive collaboration with the University of Heidelberg and Mayo Clinic Rochester.
