As a doctoral come biologists / biochemists / chemists (m / w) in Question. The project deals with the Granulomentstehung under the Sarcoidosis. The central theme is the activation of macrophages by various pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs: TLR ligands, Cordfaktoren) and their contribution to Granulomformierung. The project is carried out in close cooperation with Prof. M. Freudenberg from the Max Planck Institute for Immunobiology, and part of the planned investigations will take place at the MPI. It is possible to a PhD program of the SFB620 and the CCI Freiburg participate. Their task is mainly the development and description of an already established mouse model to be sarcoidosis. Advantage in knowledge are Mouse model but not a requirement. The duration of the project amounts to 3 Years.

Post-Doc in the Division of Cellular Allergology at Research Center Borstel Leibniz Center for Medicine and Biosciences

Research Center Borstel Leibniz Center for Medicine and Biosciences

In the Division of Cellular Allergology a position for a

Post-Doc (w/m)

will be available. The position will be financed for approx. years by the BMBF (Ministry
of Education and Research) within the framework of the program "Alternative methods for animal experiments".

The Division of Cellular Allergology focuses on the identification and molecular characterization of immunmodulatory molecules from parasitic worms and the investigation of their potential use for the therapy and prophylaxis of allergies and autoimmune diseases.

The project„In vitro culture of Schistosoma mansoni – culture dish instead of mammalian host” aims at establishing the complete mammalian part of the life cycle of schistosomes in
vitro. The current culture protocol in this lab allows propagating schistosomula in vitro
up to the adult stage including pairing and deposition of immature eggs. Now, it is
intended to further optimize the culture conditions to obtain fully mature eggs and
release of infective miracidia. In parallel, the technique of cryopreservation of live schistosomes will be optimized along with establishment of a schistosome bank. This will
allow the need-based access to infectious stages of the parasite and render continuous
maintenance of the parasite life cycle in laboratory animals unnecessary. In vitro culture
provides a highly effective tool for parasitological and immunological studies that for
example allows potential anti-schistosomal drugs to be tested by high-throughput procedures.

The project will both save animal lives and improve the cost efficiency ratio for
schistosome research.

Applicants should have a strong background in parasitology, immunology and/or biochemistry.

Experiences and technical skill in the maintenance of parasites and in vitro
culture systems are prerequisites. Candidates should be team workers with a high
degree of commitment and creativity. They should have a good command of English
and should be able to present scientific data in a transparent and competent manner.
Computer knowledge will be an advantage.

The Research Center Borstel supports the employment of disabled person. Person with
disabilities will, with appropriate qualifications and aptitudes, be employed preferentially.
The Research Center Borstel is an equal opportunity employer and women are encouraged
to apply.

Candidates should submit a CV and two reference letters to: Personnel Office of the

Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg seeking for 2 Doktorandenstellen, 2 PhD Positions in topic “Participation of mast cells in pregnancy success?”

Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg - Medizinische Fakultät - Department of Experimental Obstetrics and Gynaecology

2 Doktorandenstellen, 2 PhD Positions (50 v. H.; Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L) 3 years, both prolongables

Topic: “Participation of mast cells in pregnancy success?”

The 2 PhD positions available are granted within the budget from a DFG-funded project
which has as main aim to investigate whether mast cells contribute to pregnancy success,
contrary to the so far known theories but accordingly with the breakthrough new data published for transplantation. We do believe that investigating the participation of MC and MC-related genes in Treg-induced tolerance during pregnancy will contribute to the knowledge of the basic mechanisms regulating immune tolerance during pregnancy, a major biological question with tremendous medical implications in other fields such as transplantation and tumor research.

We expect theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience in reproductive biology or
immunology and molecular biology, very good English skills, team spirit and the ability of
working independently. The position is open for biologists, biochemists, biotechnologist or
scientists with equal qualification (MSc) willing to perform their PhD in our department.

Solid knowledge in molecular biological and immunological methods is expected. The methods include flow cytometry, embedding in paraffin, cryosection, immunohistochemistry, cell culture among others. Furthermore it is of advantage to have experience with in vivo models (mouse, rat).

Severely disabled persons are with the same qualification considered. Women are especially
requested to make an application.

Applicants should submit their applications (consisting in curriculum vitae, certificates, motivation letter, publications, and two referees) until 31st August 2009 to:
Prof. Dr. Ana Zenclussen

University of Würzburg Postdoctoral position

University of Würzburg Postdoctoral position

A postdoctoral position is available within the CRU216
„Characterization of the Oncogenic Signaling Network in Multiple Myeloma:
Development of Targeted Therapies“ (supported by the DFG)

Institute: Institute for Virology and Immunobiology,
Department of Immunology (chair: Prof. Dr. T. Hünig)
Location: Würzburg, Bavaria, Germany
Duration: 3 years (starting July 1st, 2009)

Summary of the project: Despite the fact that CD28 is predominantly expressed on aggressive variants of MM, little is known about the signaling network of CD28 in these cells. In the current project, we will examine the influence of CD28 signals on human MM cell lines and primary MM samples. Additionally, in a transgenic mouse
model closely recapitulating features of human MM, we will study the
role of CD28 in proliferation, differentiation and homing.
Person to contact: Interested candidates are invited to send their CV
and a summary of their latest research to: PD Dr. Ingolf Berberich
(berberich.i@uni-wuerzburg.de, phone: +49 931 201 49 930). Please
include the phone numbers and email addresses of 2 referees.

The University of Würzburg seeks to increase the number of women in
those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly
encourages applications from female scientists. The University of Würzburg
