A one-year full-time post-doctoral position with a possibility of extension for 3 additional years is available in the Laboratory of Immunology-Vaccinology ( of Liege University in Belgium.

The proposed project aims at deciphering new mechanisms of immune evasion developed by viruses. Indeed, viruses constitute pathogens of significant medical importance, yet they are also exciting molecular machines fitting perfectly into their ecological niche. They typically have a very short replication cycle, constantly adapt to their host and have evolved mechanisms that allow them to subvert or take advantage of host cell signalling.

The VirEOS project aims at filling a remaining knowledge gap: the largely understudied interplay of viral replication and fundamental aspects of host RNA metabolism. To that end, VirEOS combines the matching and complementary expertise of leading molecular virology labs from all over Belgium and brings together some of the most specialized National research infrastructures and cutting edge methodologies. The project is funded by the inter-University Excellence of Science (EOS) initiative of the Belgian Federal State.

You will work in an international team of more than 20 researchers which has recently published in top-tier journals (Nature Immunology, Plos Pathogens, EMBO journal, …) The Immunology-Vaccinology laboratory is located in the FARAH research centre, which gathers more than 200 researchers. FARAH is located on the site of the Faculty of veterinary medicine, and disposes of top-level equipment (FACS Aria III and Fortessa X20 cytometer,animal facilities, microscopes …).


We are looking for a highly motivated researcher with a PhD degree in the field of immunology or virology. You must have a good publication record demonstrating experience with common cellular and molecular biology techniques.
