ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.
We are looking for highly motivated and ambitious researchers for postdoctoral positions focusing on resident T cell mechanism to maintain skin homeostasis and disease.
About the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center (SIC)
SIC is located on the 12th floor in the award-winning Maersk Tower at the Department of Immunology and Microbiology. We offer ultra-modern facilities and a vibrant international research environment with focus on the development of early-career scientists. Based on a grant from the LEO Foundation of more than 50 million EUR, the center aims to unite leading Danish and international researchers in immunology and skin disease to provide new knowledge to enable better diagnostics and more effective treatments for a wide range of inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema. Information about the center can be found at: http://www.sic.ku.dk/
The postdoctoral studies will be performed in the Translational Skin Immunology laboratory at SIC under the supervision of Executive Director of SIC, Professor Liv Eidsmo. Research in the Eidsmo lab focuses on the role of resident T cells during homeostasis and immunopathology in the human skin. The group has defined functional subsets of resident T cells and investigates how these cells interact within their natural microenvironment in health and disease. Our technical platform includes in vitro propagation and single cell sequencing of small skin derived populations, in vivo imaging, xenotransplant models and flow based techniques.
The Eidsmo laboratory is physically divided between two sites, at the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Center in Copenhagen, Denmark, and at the Center for Molecular Medicine, CMM, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. The two labs are collaborating closely, with joint lab meetings and journal clubs and hosts bioinformaticians, biologists, medical doctors, and support personnel.
