Postdoctoral Fellow in Tumor Immune Evasion - CT0320
Immune evasion is a hallmark of cancer progression and represents a major hurdle to the design of effective therapeutic strategies. We recently uncovered a widely conserved mechanism by which resistant tumor cells respond to immune effector cell attack. The ACTIVASION project aims at exploring how this mechanism (i.e. fast remodeling of the tumor cell actin cytoskeleton) alters the structure and the function of the immunological synapse, the cell-cell interaction interface used by immune cells to recognize and kill target cancer cells.

The Data Manager & BI Specialist, under the direction of the IT BISManager, will ensure data organization, storage and analysis while always upholding agreed-upon security standards. He/she will be responsible for overseeing the development and use of data systems, in order to deliver high quality solutions that span multiple technologies/platforms.
Three LIH projects to be supported by “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships”
Postdoctoral fellows Amela Jusic, from the LIH Department of Population Health (DoPH), Marie Boudaud and Tomasz Uchanski, from the LIH Department of Infection and Immunity (DII), have been awarded financial support in the framework of the European Commission’s “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships” funding scheme. The programme will back the scientists’ work on hypertension, receptor-chemokine interactions and Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD).
TTM Project Manager - RK0320
Transversal Translational Medicine (TTM) at the LIHcreates a translational bridge between fundamental research and the clinic sothat improved/advanced diagnosis, therapy and prevention may help patients inLuxembourg and beyond. TTM wishes torecruit a Project Manager. The incumbent will be project lead for EATRIS-plusproject (50%) and other TTM research programs (50%). The aim of EATRIS-Plusis to help pooling and exploiting the translational academic capacities of theinfrastructure in omic technologies to enable researchers to better address thescientific and societal challenge of personalized medicine. Additionally, thecoordination office and 13 existing national nodes of the infrastructure willparticipate in implementing joint outreach, training, industry engagement andinternational collaboration activities to further build national capacity,increase users’ trust and strengthen EATRIS and the ERA global scientificleadership.
Advancing proteomics through industrial collaborations
The ‘Proteomics of Cellular Signaling’ research group of the LIH Quantitative Biology Unit, led by Prof Gunnar Dittmar, has teamed up with Bruker Daltonics, a leading international manufacturer of mass spectrometers, to develop new applications for targeted proteomics on their new flagship mass spectrometer ‘TimsTOF Pro’. The goal of this collaboration, which saw the endowment of one of Bruker’s novel mass spectrometers to the research group, is to develop new targeted techniques to improve the measurement of diagnostic biomarkers for cancer and other diseases.
