Fellowships in Immunology at the LEO Foundation

by opportunitydiary

Application Deadline: 13 October 2022

Application Procedure

The Coquet group is dedicated to understanding the basic functions of T helper cells in immunological disorders including allergies, autoimmune diseases and cancer. The group uses cutting-edge techniques including single RNA-Sequencing, gene-targeted mouse strains, human tissues from various disease settings and multiparameter flow cytometry to probe how T helper cells differentiate and elucidate factors that may prevent or exacerbate their differentiation. A particular focus over the last few years has been to understand how environmental factors including pollutants or microbes may impact on the quality of the T helper cell response and how these may impact on the incidence of allergic disorders.  We are also increasingly interested in understanding the clonal nature of B and T cell responses and leveraging clone information for antigen discovery.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must have qualifications corresponding to a master’s degree related to the subject area of the project, e.g. microbiology and immunology. Please note that your master’s degree must be equivalent to a Danish master’s degree (two years).

Other important criteria are:

  • The grade point average achieved
  • Professional qualifications relevant to the PhD project
  • Previous publications
  • Relevant work experience
  • Other professional activities
  • A curious mind-set with a strong interest in immunology, cancer biology and allergy
  • Language skills

Application Procedure

Your application must be submitted electronically by clicking ‘Apply now’ below. The application must include the following documents in PDF format: 

1. Motivated letter of application (max. one page)

2. CV incl. education, experience, language skills and other skills relevant for the position
