One of our leading Biotech clients has an opening for a Scientist Immunology/Bacteriology in Leiden. We are looking for someone with experience with designing and evaluating pre-clinical in-vivo mode.
The Bacterial Vaccine department is working on the discovery and early development of novel vaccines for bacterial infectious diseases.
- State-of-the-art vaccine discovery, with subsequent in-vivo evaluation of vaccine candidates in animal models for immunogenicity and/or efficacy.
- Establishing and optimizing manufacturing processes.
- Evaluating the resulting clinical trial material in human clinical studies.
- The development and implementation of new assays to measure immune responses of various bacterial vaccine candidates.
- Close collaboration with other scientists and technicians in evaluating vaccine candidates.
- Some supervision of the work of technicians is anticipated.
- PhD in Biological/Medical sciences with strong immunology/bacteriology background.
- Certified Animal experiments (art. 9 or comparable)
- Experience with designing and evaluation of pre-clinical in vivo mode.
- The role requires knowledge of immunological techniques such as:
- Killing assays
- Electrochemiluminescence assays (ECL)
- B- and T-cell ELISPOT
- Proliferation assays
- Cytokine release assays
- Intracellular cytokine staining
- FACS analysis
- Cell culturing
