PhD position in “Gut Microbiota and Infections” at Max-von-Pettenkofer Insititute
The position is available from June 2011 onwards.
The DFG-funded position focuses on the molecular mechanisms of pathogen-microbiota interactions in the inflamed gut. We aim at identifying traits that contribute to the pathogen-competitive phenotype of commensal E. coli using genetic screening approaches in a mouse colitis model.
The position requires a Masters degree in Life Sciences or related disciplines. Candidates with experience in microbiology, molecular biology or immunology will be preferred. Experience with animal models is of advantage.
Applications, including a letter of motivation, CV, certificates, list of publications, and names of 3 referees with e-mail addresses and phone numbers should be sent via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
