A challenging position within the largest University Medical Center (UMC) in the Netherlands with high ambitions in the areas of care, education and research.
The successful applicant will be based at the Laboratory of Pediatrics, Erasmus MC, and work in the team of Dr. Wendy Unger.
As a research laboratory, the Pediatrics Laboratory is directly affiliated with the Sophia Children's Hospital. Our research focuses on studying disease in the developing child with a special focus on infection and the response of the developing immune system. There is a strong interaction with various clinical departments in the hospital, such as the departments of Pediatric Pulmonology, Pediatric Infectious Diseases/Immunology, Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. This interaction allows discoveries from research to be quickly translated into practice but also vice versa to generate clinically relevant questions for new research goals.
