About the project:

The International Centre for Cancer Vaccine Science (ICCVS) conducts an innovative new partnership between the University of Gdańsk and the University of the Republic in Montevideo addressing a major challenge in cancer medicine. The ICCVS based at the University of Gdańsk, supported by the Foundation for Polish Science, aims to create a world-leading research cluster in the discovery, characterization and translation of molecular mechanisms in cancer immunological science. We are now launching an international recruitment programme for exceptional scientists who wish to join a multidisciplinary centre which aims to integrate science and technology to bring together core expertise in molecular, biochemical and cell biology with proteogenomics, bioinformatics, structural biology, synthetic biology, cancer and immunology. We are now looking to fill a position to work within a team of post-doctoral scientists who have knowledge in the field of generating therapeutic antibodies with a focus on the production in tobacco plants. Part of the work will be carried out at the partner institution, University of the Republic in Montevideo.
The ICCVS will conduct research into novel ways to kick-start the human immune system so that it is abble to better target cancer cells. The new knowledge will be useful in future clinical and industrial work on cancer immunotherapy, making oncological treatment more effective.

The project is carried out within the International Research Agenda Programme of the Foundation for Polish Science and funded from the funds of the European Regional Development Fund under the Smart Growth Operational Programme, Priority Axis 4: Increasing the research potential, Measure 4.3: International Research Agenda.
