Description: A 2 to 3 years bioinformatic position is available at the Central University Research Hospital (CHRU), Lille France in precision cellular immunotherapy. The project will be led by Suman Mitra and Prof. Franck Morschhauser and at the CHRU Lille, with close collaboration with Martin Figeac at the Genomic Core Laboratory, UMS2014/US41, CHU de Lille, University of Lille. The candidate will work under the guidance of Suman Mitra and Martin Figeac. The main projects focus on dissecting the immunobiology of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapies for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This is truly a translational research project with the goal to identify novel mechanisms-based biomarkers of therapeutic response and failure of CAR-T therapy in Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

The position will involve DNA and RNA sequencing analysis. The candidate is expected to conduct analysis, prioritize and multitask, and thrive in a highly collaborative environment. She or He will have the opportunity to build working relationships with leading clinicians and scientists to broaden scientific knowledge and skills. The main tasks of the candidate will be the analysis of bulk RNA-seq and Exome data. The candidate will also have the opportunity to work on single-cell data. The candidate will work in collaboration with a post-doc recruited on this project and based mainly in Leiden who will be in charge of the analysis part of the immune repertoire. The position is available from December 2020.
