Postdoc in Cancer Immunology and Lipid Metabolism in the Tumor Immune Microenvironment

VIB

Brussels, Belgium

Description

The Jo Van Ginderachter lab is looking for an excellent postdoctoral scientist interested in understanding the mechanisms that regulate the heterogeneity and pro-tumoral activity of tumor-associated macrophages, and how we can use such mechanisms to optimize immunotherapy. In particular, we want to understand how lipids and altered lipid metabolism regulate tumor-associated macrophages and whether we can reprogram the macrophages by interfering with lipid metabolism.

The project relies on cutting-edge lipidomics, spatial lipidomics and spatial multiomics technologies to map the heterogeneity of macrophages at the level of lipid metabolism. This project is also further supported by a bioinformatician in the JVG lab.

The JVG lab is located at the Science/Humanities campus of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, in the center of Brussels and in the heart of Europe, and is part of the excellence-based VIB Center for Inflammation Research (director: Bart Lambrecht).

Profile

  • Ph.D. in biology, bio-engineering sciences, medical sciences, biomedical sciences, or related disciplines;
  • Solid publication record;
  • Experienced in immunology, preferably myeloid cell biology and/or metabolism of immune cells;
  • Experienced in working with mouse models (FELASA B or C required);
  • Experience with flow cytometry and lipidomics or other omics technologies is highly beneficial;
  • Experience in tumor immunology is beneficial;
  • Excellent spoken and written English skills;
  • Creative, highly motivated, independent, team player.
