PhD Position Infectiology - Investigation of Pathogen-Host Interaction of M. abscessus in Cystic Fibrosis

As part of the research project "Identification and Evaluation of Mycobacterium abscessus complex specific immunogenic protein as tool for detection and characterization of infection in Cystic Fibrosis patients" by the Pediatric Pneumology and Infectious Diseases Group (project supervisor: Dr. M. Steindor; Head: Prof. Dr. M. Jacobsen) at the Department of General Pediatrics at the Heinrich-Heine-University in Duesseldorf (director: Professor Dr. E. Mayatepek) funded by the Research Committee of the University of Duesseldorf project we offer a
 PhD position (f/m)
for a biologist/biochemist/human biologist starting from 01/11 or 01/12/2015. Salary is ½ TV-L E13 (German public service) and the position is initially limited to 2 years.
This infectiological project investigates pathogen-host interaction. The aim of the project is the identification and purification of M. abscessus-specific proteins and their application in immunological and immunodiagnostic T cell assays with particular focus on Cystic Fibrosis. Promising candidates have a very good master’s degree in Biology/Human Biology/Biochemistry. Great interest in clinically focused basic research is a precondition. Experience with methods of immunology, microbiology, proteomics and/or molecular genetics (e.g. flow cytometry, bacterial culture, cloning, protein purification, BLAST) are particularly welcome. 
Please send your application documents in electronic form including CV, list of publications, certificates and references to Dr. med. M. Steindor This email address is also available for questions and further information.
