Ph.D students at the Chair of Nutrition and Immunology (Technische Universität München)

 Technische Universität München  Freising
We are currently seeking motivated and talented scientists to join our team as PhD students at the Chair of Nutrition and Immunology, headed by Prof. Dr. Dirk Haller.
The incidence of immune-mediated and metabolism-related chronic diseases like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colon cancer have dramatically been increasing over the past decades in industrialized countries. Nutrition as well as the intestinal microbiota emerged as environmental triggers for the development of IBD and colon cancer. The identification of disease-associated nutritional and microbial factors and  the underlying  mechanisms (inflammatory processes, stress response pathways of the endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria) is a major scientific focus of the Chair of Nutrition and Immunology.

We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic PhD students with an excellent M. Sc. or diploma degree in Nutritional Science, Biology, Biotechnology or a related discipline. Candidates should have a solid background in either immunology, microbiology or molecular biology and should be willing to work with mouse models.

We offer a challenging interdisciplinary project at the interface of nutrition, microbiome research and biomedicine, well-equipped laboratories with top-notch facilities (germ-free mouse house, high-throughput technologies for sequencing and mass spectrometry) and a fruitful scientific environment.
The positions are available immediately and funded for 3 years. Salary will be determined according to the German collective wage agreement in public service (TV-L 13/ 50-65%).

TUM is an equal opportunity employer. Therefore women are especially encouraged to apply. Disabled persons with equivalent qualifications will be preferentially employed.
If you are interested please send your application with CV, a brief statement of research experiences and interests, diplomas and the names and contact information of two references in a single PDF file by e-mail until September 24th, 2017
