Postdoctoral Fellow (m/f) in the Rinkevich Lab

Helmholtz Zentrum München - Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Gesundheit und Umwelt (GmbH)

Munich, Germany

The Helmholtz Zentrum München in Munich, Germany, is member of one of the leading research associations in Europe – the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. The aim of our research is to proactively detect health risks involving humans and the environment, decoding the mechanisms of pathogenesis and developing concepts for prevention and therapy.

The lab is located at the newly built Institute of Lung Biology and Disease (ILBD), Comprehensive Pneumology Center, and provides a creative and interdisciplinary environment. ILBD belongs to the Helmholtz Zentrum München – Europe’s leading research center focused on biomedicine and environmental health.

The expertise of Helmholtz Zentrum München ranges from biomedicine to basic research and provides an unparalleled array of experimental platforms, core facilities, clinical cooperation groups and centers for translational medicine. This environment offers the fellow an additional wide field of expertise in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research areas. Munich further offers a highly stimulating environment for research.

The close neighbourhood of the HMGU, comprising the Technische Universität München, the Ludwig-Maximilian University, and several institutes of the Max-Planck-Society, offers numerous interactions and stimulating collaborations.

Our lab explores how tissues/organs regenerate following injury and at multiple levels of biological organization, from the level of whole organisms to the level of single cells. Our work therefore carries both basic, clinical and evolutionary implications.

To identify fundamental cellular and molecular principles of tissue/organ regeneration and develop a knowledge basis for therapeutic strategies in clinical use the Institute of Lung Biology/''Cellular Therapeutics in Chronic Lung Disease'' is looking for a motivated
