• Conduct ex vivo analyses of tumors, blood and additional organs derived from in vivo animal studies using multiparametric flow cytometry and/or CyTOF
• Conduct ex vivo functional assays using Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (TILs) or splenocytes to characterize the functionality of T cells and other immune cells in the tumor microenvironment
• Contribute to activities applying high dimensional single cell analysis approaches for deeper molecular characterization of tumors (including single cell RNA sequencing and CyTOF)
• Data analysis and interpretation, preparation of scientific presentations, regular presentations at internal and external meetings
• Writing of scientific reports and research articles

• Excellent hands-on experience with ex vivo assessment of immune cell functionality including assessment of immune cell activation, cytokine production (intracellular and secreted). Previous experience in T cell
exhaustion is a plus.
• Strong communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills, excellent teammate
• A high degree of self-motivation, flexibility and capacity to independently setup and conduct experiments, ability to take initiative and work according to time-lines
