The research group of Dr. Elvira Mass is looking to recruit a highly motivated PhD student to join her group Developmental Biology of the Innate Immune System.
Our research focuses on tissue-resident macrophages and their homeostatic functions. Specifically, we are interested how macrophages impact organ development and function during embryogenesis and postnatal stages on the cellular and molecular level. Based on new developmental and mechanistic knowledge, we seek to improve our understanding of disease pathophysiology and treatment.
We are part of the Life & Medical Science (LIMES) Institute, which is supported by DFG and Cluster of Excellence funding and which offers a great scientific environment for young researchers.
- Previous experience in cell biology/immunology/hematopoiesis/animal models
- The willingness to work with mice is a prerequisite
- basic immunological and histological techniques such as flow cytometry and immunofluorescent stainings are beneficial
- Programming skills (R/Python) for transcriptome analysis are advantageous
Your application should include:
- brief summary of your previous work experience (max. 1/2 page)
- contact information of referees and dates when you wish to start the position
- optional: 1 page research proposal for your PhD project, which builds on the study Mass et al. Science 2016
