The lab of Dr. Zeinab Abdullah have longstanding expertise in the study of immune regulatory mechanisms during inflammatory diseases in the liver. The impact of inflammation on the organ specific immunity against infectious microorganisms are yet unknown. In the context of an innovative project we aim to investigate the impact of inflammatory diseases in the liver on the function of innate and adoptive immune cells. In particular we will put a great emphasis on comprehensive assessment of the activation, expansion and function of organ specific antigen presenting cells and T cells, which are crucial for the control of infections but also for organ homeostasis and regeneration. In these projects we aim to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which inflammatory processes in the liver affects the outcome of the immune response, which provide insight why inflammatory processes persevere infections that in turn perpetuate inflammations.
The ideal candidate will be a highly motivated, team-oriented graduate with a strong interest in innate immunity and immune responses to bacterial infections. Experience with animal experimentation, cell culture and molecular biology techniques are advantageous. Candidates should hold a master degree in Bio-Medicine, Biology, or a related subject.
The PhD position will be integrated into the IITB – International Immunology Training Program Bonn within the ImmunoSensation Cluster/ Bonn. We offer supportive mentoring and a well-equipped laboratory.
Salary will be according to the German salary scale TV-L 13 65%. The University of Bonn is an equal opportunity employer. Preference will be given to suitably qualified female applicants or handicapped people, all other considerations being equal.

Über Universität Bonn
The Institute of Molecular Medicine and Experimental Immunology (IMMEI) was founded in 2002.It is situated on the medical Campus of the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat Bonn. The scientific mission of IMMEI is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling the immune response in a local fashion to develop either into immunity or immune tolerance. Comprehensive knowledge of the...Mehr über die Universität Bonn
