PhD fellowship in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN European Training Network PANDORAExternal

News Overview

Deadline: March 31, 2016

The PANDORA network is seeking scientists for a PhD fellowship in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN European Training Network PANDORA, Palermo, on “In vitro short-term cultures of sea urchin immune cells: characterization of the innate/inflammatory responses to NP”. The research activities implemented in PANDORA have the following objectives:

  1. To identify immunological mechanisms triggered by nano-objects, and predictive markers of risk vs. safety
  2. To do so by a collaborative cross-species comparison, from plants to human, of innate immune defence capacity, using selected, industrially-relevant NP
  3. To design predictive in vitro assays to measure the immuno-risk of NP to the environment and human health, as new approaches to industrial and environmental nanosafety testing.

Deadline for application: 31 March 2016
