In the frame of a European project, we are looking for a talented, highly-motivated young scientist to fill a post-doctoral position at the Institut Pasteur de Lille (France) to work on a novel concept of tuberculosis vaccine development. With the exception of COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021, tuberculosis remains the leading cause of mortality due to a single infectious organism, Mycobacterium tuberculosis ...

We seek to hire a highly motivated candidate to work on the role of the Unfolded Protein Response (UPR) in modulating type 1 conventional dendritic cell (cDC1) functions in the context of Toxoplasma gondii infection. We recently unravelled that induction of the IRE1 pathway of the UPR is essential to activate key cDC1 functions and establish an efficient T-cell mediated control of parasite dissemination during acute toxoplasmosis (Poncet A et al. EMBO R, 2021, PMID: 33586853). We now aim to identify the involved molecular mechanisms, focusing on the cross-talk between changes in lipid metabolism induced by the infection and UPR-mediated regulation of cDC1 maturation and MHC-I antigen presentation. To this aim transgenic mice, in vitro cDC1 models and transgenic T. gondii strains will be used. The study will combine immuno-phenotyping techniques, metabolic assays, cellular biology and transcriptomic approaches.
