PhD student in chemokine immunobiology - HORIZON-MSCA-2022-DN Doctoral Network “B-ACTIVE”

These projects, funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)-doctoral network program  "B-ACTIVE", is a EU-funded collaboration between the universities of Leuven, Copenhagen, Graz, Ljubljana, Uppsala and several industrial partners located in Copenhagen, Uppsala, Graz, Cambridge and Paris (see https://b-active-dn.

eu). In the B-ACTIVE consortium, fundamental and clinical scientists and companies will study the impact of posttranslational modifications of chemokine ligands and receptors while training 10 doctoral candidates into future experts with translational and interdisciplinary mindsets. The doctoral candidates will characterize interactions between chemokine ligands, receptors and glycosaminoglycans, study signaling pathways and recognize their importance in inflammatory reactions. B-ACTIVE thus provides training in the complexity of inflammatory responses from basic science to clinical applications and industrial development. B-ACTIVE aims to unite fundamental and clinical scientists with pharmaceutical companies to explore the impact of posttranslational modifications of chemokine ligands and receptors. The project’s goal is to enhance our comprehension of inflammatory responses, pinpoint the right drug targets, and actively contribute to pharmaceutical development, ultimately improving patient treatment. The MSCA doctoral networks aim to train creative, entrepreneurial, innovative and resilient doctoral candidates, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge into societal benefit.


We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to contribute to this project at Uppsala University under supervision of Prof. Mia Phillipson. Applicants should have a master degree in Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, Biotechnology, Immunology, Microbiology, or closely related fields, and a genuine interest in immunology and physiology. We require candidates to be self-driven, ambitious,  well-organized and enthusiastic about science and to work well in teams. Emphasis will be placed on previous work in laboratory environment and research experience. Experience with proteomics and metagenomics is considered meritorious for applicants when filling the position. Successful candidate will be part of an international network with industrial and scientific partners across Europe via the MSCA/Doctoral Network 'B-ACTIVE'. Regular meetings, workshops and international secondments within the B-ACTIVE network will supplement the training and support provided at the host laboratory.
