The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute – (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.

The newly established Department of Infection Immunology invites talented and highly gifted candidates to apply as a

Postdoctoral Researcher (f/div/m)
in T-Cell Immunology

for four years initially with a possibility for extension.

Research Area:

The Department of Infection Immunology addresses fundamental questions about the mechanistic basis of human T-cell memory formation, stabilization, and modulation. It also investigates T-cell communication with the local tissue microenvironment in settings of infections, autoimmunity and cancer. This research has unraveled several novel T-cell functions and immunomodulatory factors. The department uses novel cutting-edge technologies in the area of high-dimensional single-cell analysis (scRNAseq, Spectral flow cytometry) to translate fundamental insights into translational applications for human health and disease. The prospective candidate will have the opportunity to investigate the metabolic regulation of the human tissue resident T-cells and their crosstalk with the microenvironment.

Requirements:

We offer:

The successful candidate will be hosted in the Department of Infection Immunology. The Leibniz-HKI is embedded in the outstanding scientific environment of the Beutenberg Campus providing state-of-the-art research facilities and a highly integrative network of life science groups. We offer a multifaceted scientific project with excellent technical facilities, as well as strong scientific collaborations.

Salary is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). As an equal opportunity employer the Leibniz-HKI is committed to increasing the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply.
