The van Lookeren Campagne lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate to perform independent research to study how cross-talk between immune cells and stromal cells controls intestinal epithelial barrier function during homeostasis and disease.

In particular, we are interested in the identification of novel cell-specific regulatory pathways and in dissecting their impact on the tissue microenvironment in vitro utilizing intestinal organoids and in vivo models of intestinal inflammation and cancer.

The postdoctoral position is for 3 years with the option to extend for an additional year .
