Institut Pasteur Cambodia is looking for a new Postdoctoral Scientist

Institut Pasteur Cambodia seeks a motivated Postdoctoral Scientist to study adaptive immune responses during flavivirus infection in Institut Pasteur funded project.
An Institut Pasteur funded postdoctoral position is available in the Immunology Unit of Dr. Tineke Cantaert at Institut Pasteur Cambodia to study adaptive immune responses during flavivirus infection. Our research is driven by the hypothesis that proper control of host adaptive immune responses are needed for a favorable clinical outcome during secondary flavivirus infection in humans. Appropriate cohort design and our location in a flavivirus endemic region enables us to explore new avenues of research.
The researcher will be involved in molecular characterization of human B and T cell responses during flavivirus infection. The successful candidate holds a PhD in life science and has a strong track record in the analysis of human adaptive immune responses and substantial molecular biology experience. Expertise in NGS and/or immunosequencing data analysis is a prerequisite for this function.
The Institute Pasteur Cambodia provides cutting edge biomedical research in bacteriology, virology, parasitology, immunology and epidemiology on pathogens endemic to South-East Asia. Institute Pasteur Cambodia is part of the Institut Pasteur International Network (IPIN), located in 26 countries on five continents, united by a shared mission to improve human health trough biomedical research. Present in numerous endemic areas, the network is a demonstrated fore player in identification and characterization of emerging infectious diseases.
The successful candidate will be part of a team of international researchers and participate in international research programs in a highly competitive scientific environment. Our Unit has strong collaborations within the IPIN, hence, mobility of the candidate is a highly favored.
The position is full time for minimum 2 years with the possibility of prolongation and will start March
2020. Salary is competitive to international standards and includes expatriate package.

A glance into the past in Singapore!

It is always nice to see our alumni! The Options for the Control of Influenza meeting in Singapore was the occastion for the reunion of 2010 HKU-Pasteur Virology course students with Malik Peiris, HKU-Pasteur's Co-Director.

It is very inspiring to see everyone's the achievments. Shashank Tripathy, which was the major of the 2010 Virology course and gave a seminar at the School of Public Health in HKU earlier this week, is now Assistant Professor in the Microbiology and Cell Biology Department of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India, Sandy Mak works for the National Public Health Laboratory in Singapore as a Scientific Officer and Naning Agustiningsih is a Junior Researcher at the National Institute of Health Research and Development, Jakarta, Indonesia.

HKU-Pasteur's courses are a unique opportunity for participants to build a strong and long-lasting network with students from all over the world and an international faculty of leading scientists. Join our LinkedIn group and the dedicated Facebook group!
