We are looking for a highly motivated research technician/engineer to join our team at the Translational Research Unit, Section of Cellular therapy, Oslo University Hospital-Radium Hospital, Oslo, Norway. The section is home to one of Europe’s biggest and most modern GMP facilities for cellular products. The Unit is composed of 18 employees within a section that counts close to 40.
The focus of the Translational Research Unit is the development of new immunotherapy treatments for cancer. This includes the pre-clinical and clinical testing of enhanced cancer vaccines, adoptive T-cell therapy (TCR, CAR) and the improvement of cellular therapy for increased resistance to the microenvironment. After six years of activity, our results have generated numerous patent applications, the establishment of a biotech company (Zelluna Immunotherapy AS) and translation into a clinical protocol of T-cell therapy (NCT03431311).
This is a limited term appointment with funding for this post expected to be available for a period of 15 months from February 2022 in the first instance with the possibility of extension. The candidate will be under the supervision of Dr. Else Marit Inderberg (group leader).
