Postdoctoral Researcher - Cellular and Molecular Immunoregulation

Type of job: full-time

We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral fellow with a background in immunology and cell biology who will join the team of Dr. Jan Frič focused on cell signaling control of innate immune response and inflammatory regulation of hematopoiesis. The Cellular and Molecular Immunology Group is part of Centre for Translational Medicine (CTM) at the International Clinical Research Center of St. Anne´s University Hospital in Brno (FNUSA – ICRC).

About FNUSA-ICRC

The International Clinical Research Center of St. Anne's University Hospital in Brno (FNUSA-ICRC), Czech Republic is a new-generation research center focusing on the pathogenesis of diseases including finding new methods, technologies and medicaments for effective prevention, early diagnostics and individualized treatment. We are a top Central European research center with more than 200 researchers, new technologies and experience in using EU grant support. We focus on research and development mainly in the fields of cardiovascular and neurological diseases. Our partners are world-class research centers and universities. For more reference, you can see our website.

Research focus:

The postdoctoral researcher will develop an independent project in the field of innate immune signaling and inflammatory regulation of hematopoiesis. The postdoctoral researcher will have an opportunity to participate in ongoing grant projects targeting unresolved aspects of pattern recognition receptors signaling in peripheral blood monocytes in context of inflammation and immunosenescence.

The Cellular and Molecular Immunoregulation group (CMI) develops experimental models addressing the role of hematopoietic precursors in orchestrating immune response in tissues (3D models). Furthermore, CMI studies new aspects of pattern recognition receptors signaling pathways. These signaling pathways are main sensors of infection and tissue damage and play the crucial role in control of acute and chronic inflammatory disorders accompanying for example tissue regeneration or aging processes. A better understanding of pattern recognition receptors signaling may lead to new strategies for the therapeutic control of inflammatory disorders.
