Description

A postdoc position for a fixed term of three years for high-dimensional single cell analysis of natural killer cell repertoires at K.G. Jebsen Center for Cancer Immunotherapy. We are looking for a highly motivated PhD with a strong background in bioinformatics/computational biology.

The project concerns the mechanisms underlying the functional diversification of human natural killer cells. Studies of immunological diversity in populations are combined with assessment of high-dimensional single cell data generated by RNASeq, flow cytometry and CyTOF.
