OPEN PhD-training position within DFG Research Training Group (RTG) 2157 "3D Infect"

Project: Host-pathogen interactions revealed by 3D high resolution microscopy

Our Research Training Group (RTG) integrates the long-standing expertise in infectious diseases at the University of Würzburg and new technologies into an exciting new focus on 3D human tissue models. Within this program, scientists from the Biocenter of the University of Würzburg, the Research Center for Infectious Diseases, and the Chair of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine of the University Hospital and Fraunhofer IGB, Unit Würzburg, take a novel route to investigate microbial infections under close-to-natural conditions.

We offer: 1 fully funded Ph.D. student position at the Beilhack lab in close collaboration with scientists at the RTG 2157.

Please send application: Interested applicants should send their electronic application including a brief cover letter describing their previous research experience and current interests, updated CV, publication list and names of three potential referees not later than March 20th, 2016 to:

Open Postdoctoral Position in Immunology & Bioimaging

A postdoctoral appointment is available full time to study immune cell mechanisms in mouse models of hematopoietic cell transplantation. Interested and highly motivated candidates will be given the opportunity to participate in an innovative translational research project on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of acute graft-versus-host disease and cancer immunotherapy. We conduct experiments with fluorescent and luminescent transgenic mouse lines, in vivo bioluminescence imaging and state-of-the-art microscopy techniques, flowcytometry, and molecular biology methods.

A successful applicant will have prior experience in animal models, in particular, experience and aptitude with adoptive cellular transfer models, a background in immunology, cell culture techniques, molecular biology and/or regulation of gene expression. A demonstrated publication record in these or related areas is essential along with excellent communication skills, fluency in English (both written and spoken) and the ability to work independently and together with a team.

Applications from severely handicapped persons with basically similar qualification will be given priority.

Compensation will be according to German TVL 13.

Interested applicants should send their electronic application including a brief cover letter describing their previous research experience and current interests, updated CV, publication list and names of three potential referees to:

Open Postdoctoral  Position in Immunology & Fungal Research

A postdoctoral appointment is available full time to study the interactions between
Aspergillus fumigatus and different immune cell population in mouse models of invasive aspergillosis in hematopoietic cell transplantation (e.g. Donat et al. Virulence 3; 51-61, 2012. Rieber et al. Cell Host Microbe 17(4): 507-14, 2015, Chopra et al. Blood 126(4):437-444, 2015). Interested and highly motivated candidates will be given the opportunity to participate in an innovative translational research consortium (FungiNet) on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions after A. fumigatus infection. We conduct experiments with fluorescent and luminescent A. fumigatus strains, transgenic optical reporter mouse lines, in vivo bioluminescence imaging and state-of-the-art microscopy techniques, flowcytometry, and molecular biology methods.

A successful applicant will have prior experience in the molecular biology of fungal infections or immunology, experience and aptitude with cell culture techniques, molecular biology and/or regulation of gene expression or animal models and adoptive cellular transfer models and/or microscopy and a theoretical background in microbiology and/or immunology. A demonstrated publication record in these or related areas is essential along with excellent communication skills, fluency in English (both written and spoken) and the ability to work independently and together with a team.

Applications from severely handicapped persons with basically similar qualification will be given priority.

Compensation will be according to German TVL 13.
