Guichard / Hamel


One fully funded Postdoc position in super-resolution expansion microscopy for T cell engineering at Centriole Lab and Swiss Cancer Center Leman, UNIGE/ CHUV in Geneva- Switzerland (f/m/n)

The position is funded by the ISREC TANDEM funding scheme, which aims at bringing cutting edge basic science technologies closer to the clinic. Specifically, the project will establish super-resolution expansion microscopy for preclinical investigation of engineered T cell products, like CAR T cells.

Work will include collaborative research at the national level.

The successful applicant will be embedded in the centriole lab of Dr. Virginie Hamel and Prof. Paul Guichard at the University of Geneva. The project will be co-supervised by Dr. Virginie Hamel and Dr. Benita Wolf.

We offer:

  • Mentoring and teaching skills in the fields of structural imaging via cryo-Expansion super-resolution microscopy, in translational immune-oncology, cellular immunotherapy and T cell engineering strategies, production of engineered T cells
  • Constructive and synergistic lab environment
  • Participation in National and International Conferences
  • Membership ESMO, SITC

Your profile

  • PhD or equivalent academic degree in Biology, Biochemistry, or Physics, with experience in cell culture techniques
  • background in imaging and automated image analysis
  • strong interest in translational immune oncology, no experience needed but a plus
