New international food allergy project is recruiting PhD students!
ALLPreT, a new international research consortium, of which the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) is a member, is looking for PhD students to develop new approaches for testing the allergy safety of novel food products.
The Allergenicity Prediction Toolbox or “ALLPreT”, is a novel consortium of 9 full partners and 15 associated partners from universities, research institutes, hospitals, patient organizations and industry across Europe and the United States. The project’s main goals are to develop allergy assessment assays for novel foods to ensure their safety before being brought to market. This will be done by resolving food allergy mechanisms, understanding the association with the immune system, and investigating the intrinsic properties of allergenic proteins such as epitopes and digestibility, among others.
The consortium is currently offering 10 PhD positions throughout Europe, one of which is in the Department of Infection and Immunity at the LIH. This specific position focuses on studying the ex-vivo responses of immune cells for the discovery of new biomarkers that are predictive of clinical reactivity. ALLPreT candidates will all be trained in the core aspects of food allergy risk assessment, immunology, protein chemistry, bioinformatics, model development and complementary “soft” skills to deliver well-educated young scientists, with a unique position within the EU labor market. The call for applications is open until October 31. Details can be found on the LIH Careers website and the ALLPreT website.
