Bc./Mgr. Student or Summer Intern - The Leukocyte Motility Lab

The Leukocyte Motility Lab of the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University located in BIOCEV seeks motivated students to join our newly established research team.

Project
Immunity depends on leukocyte ability to rapidly migrate within lymphoid organs and peripheral tissues. We work at the interface between cell biology and immunology and study how leukocytes distinguish various environmental cues and interpret them in their migratory behavior. Our primary focus are mechanical aspects – we want to understand how leukocytes recognize physical stress, overcome obstacles or navigate in topologically complex environments. To this end, we use microfabrication and live cell imaging.

Requirements

We are looking for students/summer interns to assist with experiments, especially with live cell microscopy, electron microscopy and data analysis. We are looking for candidates interested in cell biology, cell migration, cytoskeleton, immunology and microscopy.

We offer

We offer an opportunity to work in a newly established research group within the BIOCEV with its exceptional core resources and equipment.
