A postdoctoral position is available in unit for molecular immunology and inflammation (Prof Dirk Elewaut and Lars Vereecke). This research team focuses on molecular mechanisms of joint inflammation and associated tissue damage. Much emphasis in our work is given on its relevance to human disease. The project will take advantage of new evolutions in the role between biomechanics and inflammation. The goal of the project is to study the molecular determinants of joint inflammation using genomics and functional genomics approaches.

We offer:

- an exciting and supportive working environment with several high-end core facilities (microscopy, flow cytometry, transgenesis, cell culture, recombinant protein technology)

- expert international research groups actively collaborating within and outside the center.

- interactions with biotech companies

- plenty training possibilities (science, coaching, skills, career guidance,…).

For more information, contact Prof. Lars Vereecke (
