We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate with a strong interest in infectious diseases and a background in life sciences, biomedical sciences, or a related field. In your 4-year PhD track you’ll work on the establishment of SARS-CoV-2 and RSV (BSL-2 and BSL-3 pathogens) infection models using human primary respiratory epithelial cultures and cell lines, conduct CRISPR/Cas9 genome-wide library screens and study mechanisms of viral immune evasion. Techniques will include amonggst others virus and cell culturing, CRISPR/Cas9 genome engineering, genome-wide knock-out library screens, microscopy, lentivirus technology, molecular cloning, whole genome sequencing, viral titrations, RT-qPCR flow cytometry, and others. You will present the results of your research at (inter)national conferences and meetings. In parallel, you will follow a curriculum in a university PhD graduate school. Finally, you will write and defend a dissertation comprising of multiple scientific manuscripts to be published in international peer-reviewed journals.
You have a master’s degree in life sciences, biomedical sciences or a related field. Experience and in-depth knowledge of molecular-, cell-, or viro- biology are required. Moreover, experience with molecular biology techniques (molecular cloning, CRISPR/Cas9, etc), tissue culture, flow cytometry, and/or lentiviral expression systems is an advantage. The ideal candidate has good communicational skills, is self-motivated, detail-oriented, and collaborative. A good ability to think critically is expected
