We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to conduct research on the fundamental aspects of nutritional regulation of the immune system. The Project aims to understand how different diets are able to shape the function of the immune system. In particular, the work aims to identify how dietary-derived metabolites shape the biology of tissue resident immune cells such as innate lymphoid cells (ILC) in health and disease. The candidate will have opportunities to obtain additional external funding and develop an independent research program during postdoctoral training.
We are looking for an enthusiastic scientist with a desire to work on a challenging and rewarding project as part of a friendly and supportive team. Applicants with Ph.D. degree and graduate students expecting to receive the degree within six months will be considered.
The ideal candidate will have a background in immunology, tissue biology or cellular metabolism. Candidates with an additional background in bioinformatics are particular encouraged to apply. Experience in working with animal models, cell isolations from tissue, multi-parameter flow cytometry, molecular biology and fluorescence imaging will be preferred. The position is available for an initial period of three years.
A salary according to the German salary scale TV-L (EG 13)
Corporate customer ticket (subsidized public transport / “Jobticket“) is available
Possibility to use the day care center
Supplementary benefits in the public sector (pension plan according to VBL)
