PhD Position at the Research Center for Infectious Diseases, Würzburg

JULIUS-MAXIMILIANS-UNIVERSITÄT WÜRZBURG, GERMANY
 
Research Centre for Infectious Diseases (ZINF)

 PhD STUDENT  Position
        
        “Virulence factors and regulators required during
infections with the food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni”
 
Applications are invited for a PhD student position (starting in spring/summer 2016) in the ZINF Young Investigator Group “Deep sequencing approaches to pathogenesis” (Cynthia Sharma) in Würzburg, Germany. Our group focuses on the identification and functional characterization of small regulatory RNAs (sRNAs) in the human pathogens Helicobacter pylori and Campylobacter jejuni. This project will focus on the development of novel human 3D in-vitro infection models based on tissue engineering to study host-pathogen interactions during C. jejuni infections. Deep-sequencing based approaches (e.g. RNA-seq, Tn-seq) will be employed to monitor gene expression changes of pathogen and host during the course of infection and to identify genes, including sRNA regulators, that are relevant for infection. The underlying molecular mechanisms and targets of these sRNAs will be further studied using molecular biology, genetics and biochemical approaches.
