PhD positions

Postdoctoral position available in mast cell biology and therapeutic at Imagine Institute-Paris-France

Offer: The laboratory of Dr Gaël Ménasché at Imagine Institute ( is looking for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellow to take on an exciting translational project aimed to develop new therapeutic strategies for allergic diseases. The position is offered for one year with the possibility for extension of an additional two years. Keywords: Mast cells, allergies, anaphylaxis, secretory granules, mouse models, Rab44 Project: Allergies (i.e. asthma, atopic dermatitis, food allergy and anaphylaxis) have increased steadily since several decades in developed countries now affecting one person in three and constitute a major health problem. This epidemic explosion is the result of an interplay between a genetic predisposition in the population and a growing imbalance between the immune system and the altered environment in a modern hygienic society. This drives a Th2 response involving various immune effector cells that promote the formation of specific IgE antibodies to otherwise harmless antigens (allergens). Allergic
