Who we are
Philogen is a Swiss-Italian integrated biotechnology company founded in 1996, with the mission to develop innovative biopharmaceuticals for targeted therapy (http://www.philogen.com
). Philochem AG, the R&D department of Philogen, is located at Otelfingen, 15 minutes from Zürich. The precision medicine department of Philochem develops innovative systems immunology technologies to understand and predict a patient’s response to immunotherapy.
Philochem offers several PhD positions in the field of systems immunology.
We seek an enthusiastic PhD student for an industrial doctorate program on the involvement of T cells in immune reactions. Antigen-specific immune interactions play a central role in the development of autoimmunity and the rejection of established tumors. Based on our investigations on the mechanism of action of these fundamental processes, we are building patient stratification schemes and novel therapeutic strategies.
The successful candidate will implement and develop novel methodologies in the field of systems immunology. Methodologies include the mass spectrometric characterization of MHC-bound peptides, measurements of genome, transcriptome and proteome, characterization of antigen-specific T cells with tetramer reagents, development of bioinformatics software, and identification of disease biomarkers in collaboration with clinical centers.
- Master and/or bachelor thesis in Proteomics, Systems Biology, Computational Biology or a related field
- Confidence with working with computers and Microsoft Office
- Interest in data analysis and data visualization pipelines
- Experience with cell biology a plus
- Experience with biochemistry a plus
- Experience with python or R a plus
