ESR Project 10:  Transcriptome & Pathway Analyses of Trib1- and 3- Mouse Models of Immuno-Metabolic Disease


PhD position offered in a multidisciplinary research training program to uncover cellular control of immuno-metabolism

A PhD position (3 years fixed-term contract) is offered for a talented early stage researcher within the Tribbles Research and Innovation Network (TRAIN) funded by the EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN). The title of the PhD project is “Transcriptome & Pathway Analyses of Trib1- and 3- Mouse Models of Immuno-Metabolic Disease”. In this project, we aim to assess the gene expression consequences of loss of Treg-TRIB1/Foxp3 interaction on VAT adipocytes. The recruitment is to take place at Seqomics Biotechnology Ltd. (Szeged, Hungary) under the supervision of Istvan Nagy. The host institution is a biotech R&D organization offering genomic counselling, genomics services and bioinformatics analysis of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data.
