The research group “Neuroinflammation and Mucosal Immunology” invites application for a
PhD student / Postdoc position
Field of work
We are interested in understanding how the intestinal microbes control central nervous system autoimmunity. Our aim is to identify the mechanisms by which intestinal microbes affect the activation of innate and adaptive immune cells. We routinely use wide range of immunological assays including flow cytometry as well as biochemical, molecular/cell biological and transgenic techniques.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with analytical thinking and a solid background in immunology and molecular biology. We explicitly 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 (Bund) (public salary scale).
The positions are fixed term for 3 years (PhD) or for 2 years (Postdoc) with the possibility of an extension.

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
