    • Applicants should hold a PhD in Biotechnology, Molecular Biology, or similar and have strong experience within protein engineering and molecular cloning techniques, phage or yeasts display approaches, molecular interaction analysis, immunological techniques, and clinical immunology.
    • Experience with kinetic analyses and flow cytometry are considered advantageous.
    • Personal competences, e.g. the ability to work as part of an international research team, to supervise students etc., are required.

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    The Immunological Biotechnology laboratory headed by Edzard Spillner offers applicants an exciting opportunity to join a research project co-funded by Aarhus University and an industrial partner.

    With the global burden of allergic diseases and asthma increasing, novel approaches and concepts for treatment are urgently needed.
    The project is positioned at the interface of protein engineering and molecular allergology and will focus on approaches to interfere with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity reactions. Thereby the project will mainly rely on combinatorial display and selection approaches, protein characterisation and expression, and in vitro and cellular analyses of biomolecular interactions.
