postdoctoral scientist: Mechanisms of the Allergic Immune Response

We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist for our young research team at the Allergy Research Group, University Medical Center Freiburg, Germany

Topic: Immune regulation and tolerance induction in allergic diseases

We are a young group of 2 senior scientists, 2 post doc, 5 doctoral students and 4 technicians working toward a common goal in identifying and characterizing mechanisms that control the allergic immune response. The goal of our studies is to develop novel strategies for primary prevention and identify novel targets for a better therapy of allergic diseases. The studies will be conducted in vitro as well as in vivo using established murine animal models of allergic diseases.

The candidate should be a team player and have a strong background in immunology and/or cell biology. Experience in flow cytometry, protein chemistry and routine molecular biology is mandatory. Moreover, the candidate should be fascinated by cells and their behaviour in culture as well as interested in in-vivo studies conducted in murine animal models. Experience in supervising technicians, medical doctoral and PhD students is desirable.

We offer integration in running research activities, part time technician support and access to all required state of the art biological techniques available at the University of Freiburg.

Successful candidates will be paid according to German „Tarifvertrag für den öffentlichen Dienst der Länder (TV-L)“.
