Postdoctoral scientist t@ the Xavier Saelens Lab
VIB is a life sciences analysis institute, based mostly in Flanders, Belgium. We carry out primary analysis with a robust concentrate on translating scientific outcomes into pharmaceutical, agricultural and industrial functions. VIB is an impartial analysis institute of the federal government, with 1470 scientists from greater than 60 nations working at UGent, KU Leuven, College of Antwerp, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and Hasselt College.
The VIB-UGent Middle for Medical Biotechnology (CMB) focuses on the event of recent and revolutionary molecular instruments and applied sciences to problem human well being issues. The Middle interprets its novel applied sciences and insights to extensively relevant analysis instruments, vaccines, diagnostics, and biopharmaceuticals. Our analysis pushes the boundaries of protein-focused biomolecular and bioinformatics analysis and engineering applied sciences. CMB educates and trains the subsequent technology of medical biotechnology researchers and informs the general public on the affect of biotechnology on human well being.
The group of Xavier Saelens (https://cmb.vib.be/labs/saelens-lab) at VIB-UGent CMB has developed antibody-based antivirals towards SARS-CoV-2 and goals to increase its experience on this area.
The Saelens crew is on the lookout for a postdoctoral scientist to determine the mode of motion of SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing nanobody constructs and the potential in vitro virus escape routes.
We search a inventive postdoctoral scientist with a hands-on angle and a background in virology, biotechnology, or biochemistry. The candidate needs to be proficient in molecular biology and (SARS Coronavirus) virology. Being a crew participant and having efficient communication and scientific writing expertise are important for a profitable choice.
Monetary help is obtainable for two years, however the profitable candidate is inspired to acquire impartial funding throughout this time.
Beginning date: as quickly as doable.
