PhD position in Immunology (Immunologie) in Lübeck, Germany

PhD position in Immunology
Our laboratory in the Institute for Systemic Inflammation Research at the University of Lübeck, Germany works on the development and function of antibodies. IgG antibodies are not only effector molecules of pathogenic and pro-inflammatory immune responses but can also be mediators of tolerogenic immune responses. The inhibitory function is mediated through a specific kind of IgG Fc glycosylation. Our laboratory has discovered that antigen-specific sialylated IgG antibodies can be used to inhibit pro-inflammatory immune responses in an antigen-specific manner. Now, we investigate how differentially glycosylated pro-inflammatory or immunosuppressive IgG antibodies develop and function in human and mice. Therefore, we also produce our own monoclonal antibodies with different glyco-forms to investigate their potential in different autoimmune, allergy, vaccination and transplantation models.
For upcoming research projects we are looking for a highly motivated candidate.
Please contact Prof. Marc Ehlers (email: marc.ehlers@uk-sh.de ) AND Dr. Alexei Leliavski ( alexei.leliavski@uksh.de ) for further informations and application.
