The unit of Immunology concentrates on analyzing the regulation of the immune system in systemic autoimmune diseases, during the progression of sterile inflammatory disorders, the defense against microbes, and the progression of (skin) tumors.

The interaction of antigen-presenting cells and T cells plays an important role in the development of systemic autoimmunity, e.g., systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and it has been shown that this interaction often involves CD40/CD40L signaling. In this project, we will use an established mouse model for SLE (K14-CD40L tg) to investigate the impact of various transcription factors, including the aryl hydrocarbon receptor, on the pathophysiology of SLE and the development of autoreactive cells.

We expect:

  • An academic university degree in the fields of biology, biotechnology, molecular medicine, human medicine or a comparable field, including PhD od MD
  • Strong interest in immunology, cell biology or molecular biology
  • experience in flow cytometry, in vivo imaging, RNA sequencing, microbiome analysis
  • High level of commitment and self-motivation, flexibility and ability to work in a team as well as independently
  • Willingness to perform animal experiments and experience in handling laboratory animals (ideally FELASA certificate or comparable)
  • Fluent speaking and writing skills in English

We offer:

  • A versatile and challenging job in a dynamic, interdisciplinary and motivated team
  • A position with a high level of responsibility
  • Very good personal and professional training options, education opportunities as well as help with the reconciliation of work and family life
  • Participation in innovative projects (basic research as well as translational)
  • The possibility of postdoctoral lecture qualification (habilitation)
