Post-doctoral position offer in Immunovirology

Inserm UMR 1043 – CNRS UMR 5282

Centre of Pathophysiology of Toulouse Purpan (CPTP) Director : Roland Liblau

Research project: We aim at dissecting the role of human gamma-delta T cells in viral infections and our work is currently focussed on HEV (hepatitis E virus) infection. This virus is responsible for persistent and severe clinical manifestations in immunosuppressed individuals in particular after organ transplantation. This involves immune escape mechanisms which are poorly understood although they appear to target conventional, non-conventional and innate immunity, including gamma-delta T cells. The candidate will study the immunoregulatory role of these lymphocytes in this context, their functional capabilities and fine phenotypic and transcriptomic characteristics. This will rely on the availability of a unique collection of human samples from acutely and chronically HEVinfected individuals. Position is in Toulouse (France) and under the supervision of Eric Champagne.

Starting Date: Nov2019-Feb2020

Financial support from ANRS is available for 3 years (1+2): salary 2544-2919€ depending on experience).

Candidate requirements: Candidates should have a PhD in Immunology or Virology.

They should have a strong background in molecular immunology and/or virology, and FACS and biochemical techniques. Experience in immunogenomics / proteomics will be an advantage. Application: Send CV, a letter of motivation including a summary of previous research experience, and two reference contacts to eric.champagne@inserm.fr
