PostDoc-position in Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene, University of Lübeck.

Inflammation research represents one of the fastest growing academic disciplines with a large potential for translation into novel diagnostics and therapies. The universities of Kiel and Lübeck, the Leibniz Center for Medicine and Biosciences (Borstel) and the Max Planck Institute for Evolution ary Biology (Plön), have established the multi-disciplinary research network ”Inflammation at Interfaces“. Focus is the study of mechanisms of chronic inflammatory diseases of barrier organs (e.g. lung, skin, intestine).

The DFG Excellence Cluster provides superb infrastructures and career perspectives to young researchers. In the “Chlamydial host interactive proteins (CHIP)” group the following scientific position is immediately available:
