Position of a Technical Assistant at The Max Planck Institute for Immunobiology in Freiburg, Germany

The Max Planck Institute for Immunobiology in Freiburg, Germany,

invites applications for the Position of a Technical Assistant
available in the newly established research group of Dr. Ana Izcue from
May 1, 2009. The position is for an initial two-year appointment with the
possibility of extension.

The group studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating tolerogenic
pathways in the immune system both in mouse models and in humans (for
further information, see Izcue et al., Immunity 28, 559, 2008; Izcue, Coombes
and Powrie, Ann. Rev. Immunol. 27, in press, 2009). The group is also part
of the Centre of Chronic Immunodeficiencies at the University of Freiburg,
providing unique opportunities to interact with basic and clinical scientists.
We seek motivated and ambitious collaborators and provide a well-equipped,
world-class research environment.

Candidates for the post of Technical Assistant ideally should have previous
experience in cell and molecular biology and animal work, but this is not an
absolute requirement. Salaries will be based on previous experience according
to TVöD guidelines.
The MPI of Immunobiology is an international research institute with English
as the working language. A childcare facility is attached to the Institute.
Women are especially encouraged to apply; handicapped applicants with
equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
