About Sanquin Research & Lab services

Sanquin Blood Supply Foundation uniquely combines medical, diagnostic, blood bank and research activities. With 2,000 committed colleagues and 345,000 blood donors, we aim to provide a better life for 300,000 patients each year.

The Division of Research & Lab Services of Sanquin is home to 250 researchers and technicians, including over 60 PhD students. Thirteen senior staff hold ships at one of the Dutch universities. Research at Sanquin is organized in four strategic themes: Anemia, Bleeding & Hemostasis, Immunity & Inflammation, and Immune Therapy. The joint mission of research at Sanquin is to invent novel methods and approaches using blood cells and blood products to prevent, diagnose, treat, or cure disease in donors and patients. Research activities cover the full spectrum of early inventions, development into novel products and services, donor studies, and clinical studies in patients.

Our research labs are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including flow cytometry and cell sorting, macromolecular mass spectrometry and proteomics, and imaging. Many of our scientists have academic affiliations with Dutch Universities and University Medical Centers. Sanquin is strategically located in Amsterdam, with a special tie to the AmsterdamUMC (Joint Landsteiner Laboratory).

was the first scientific director (1950-1978) of CLB, the Central Laboratory for the Blood Transfusion Service of the Netherlands Red Cross, one of Sanquin's predecessors. He was renowned for his work in blood group serology and immunohematology. The Foundation is funding these two career fellowships.

Our research focus

The focus of our four strategic research themes are:

Immune Therapy

Immune cell therapies have proven effective to fight infections and cancer. We study immune cell differentiation, function and control, with a focus on T cells, B cells, innate lymphoid cells and neutrophils. We seek to obtain fundamental understanding of immune cell differentiation to develop innovative cellular products, that are clinically implemented in the Sanquin Laboratory of Cell Therapy and by strong ties with (academic) hospitals.

Our offer

We anticipate the two newly recruited scientists to contribute with their unique expertise, complementing our existing research portfolio. This includes inflammation and complement research, genetic and cellular approaches to correct and cure hematological disorders, as well as translational bioinformaticians with proven expertise to successfully integrate clinical and large "omics" based profiling data-sets in the area of transfusion medicine.

We offer an international - academically oriented - research environment with state of-the-art equipment. You will have the opportunity to apply for internal and external funding to expand your group and if successful to apply for a permanent position as group leader.
