The Institute of Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Pharmacology at the Faculty of Medicine of the Rheinische Friedrich Wilhelms-University Bonn invites applications for a
Postdoctoral fellow (m/f/d) – nutritional regulation of innate lymphoid cells
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to conduct research on the fundamental aspects of nutritional regulation of the immune system. The Project aims to understand how different diets are able to shape the function of the immune system. In particular the work aims to identify how dietary-derived metabolites shape the biology of tissue resident immune cells such as innate lymphoid cells (ILC) in health and disease. The candidate will have opportunities to obtain additional external funding and develop an independent research program during postdoctoral training.
We are looking for an enthusiastic scientist with a desire to work on a challenging and rewarding project as part of a friendly and supportive team. Applicants with Ph.D. degree and graduate students expecting to receive the degree within six months will be considered. The ideal candidate will have a background in immunology, tissue biology or cellular metabolism. Candidates with an additional background in bioinformatics are particular encouraged to apply. Experience in working with animal models, cell isolations from tissue, multi-parameter flow cytometry, molecular biology and fluorescence imaging will be preferred.
The University Hospital Bonn is an equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits. We offer an interdisciplinary research institution that fosters innovation and collaboration and are committed to training and career development of the next generation of scientists. The position is available for an initial period of three years.
• The salary will be according to the German salary scale TV-L (EG 13, 100%)
• A “Jobticket” (subsidized public transport)
• Possibility to use the day care center
