PhD student (m/f) in "Neuroinflammation and mucosal immunology"
The research group “Neuroinflammation and mucosal immunology” invites application for a
PhD student (m/f) or postdoc position (m/f).
Our group is interested in understanding how gut microbes control the activation of innate and adaptive immune cells during autoimmunity. We use high throughput metagenomics sequencing and genetically modified mouse models to identify novel mechanisms of host-microbe interactions. The position is funded by European Research Council (ERC) starting grant.

We are looking for talented, highly motivated and hardworking candidates with a solid background in immunology and molecular biology. We seek applications from candidates with previous work experience in transgenic mouse models, flow cytometry and cellular immunological assays. We expect that the candidate is open minded and contributes intellectually to ongoing research projects.
The successful candidates will work at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, which provide excellent research facilities, as well as a friendly and dynamic working environment. The salary level will be according to TVöD.
The position is fixed term for 3 years (PhD) or for 2 years (Postdoc) with the possibility of an extension.
The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply.

Über Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry
Proteins are the molecular building blocks and engines of the cell, and are involved in almost all processes of life. The scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) investigate the structure of proteins and how they function – from individual molecules up to whole organisms. With about 850 employees coming from 45 nations, the MPIB is one of the largest institutes...Mehr über die Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry
