PhD Position in Immunology & Tumor Biology

PhD Position in Immunology and Tumor Biology
 
The Department of Molecular Medicine at Tübingen University offers a PhD position in the field of immunology and tumour biology. The PhD project deals with the functional characterization of two novel inhibitor proteins of transcription factor NF-kappaB (NF-κB) using cell systems and genetically engineered mouse models.
 
The successful candidate will investigate how these NF-κB co-factors regulate pro- and anti-inflammatory gene expression using gene expression profiling, chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled with next generation DNA sequencing (NGS) and several functional assays. Final project aim will be the translation of the results into relevant mouse models.
 
Applicants should have a strong background in molecular biology and immunology. Experience in working with transgenic mice and/or NGS would be a plus but is not compulsory.
 
The Department of Molecular Medicine is located at the Interfaculty Institute of Biochemistry and focuses on several projects at the interface of tumor biology, immunology and stem cell research. As an interfaculty institute, the group belongs the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Science. We provide an international, innovative, well-equipped and scientifically stimulating surrounding with multiple interactions to both of these faculties. The department is affiliated to the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK) and embedded in several (inter)national research networks.

The University seeks to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore urges qualified women researchers to apply. Disabled candidates will be given preference over other equally qualified applicants.
 
Candidates should send their application with CV, motivation letter and the names and contact information of two references as a single PDF file at latest by June 19, 2016 via email to:
