A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Sebastian Zeissig at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel.

Our group is interested in mucosal immunology and particularly in the role of T cells in intestinal inflammation (www.mucosalimmunology.uni-kiel.de/de). In studies to investigate the therapeutic modulation of the intestinal T cell repertoire, we currently seek a postdoctoral researcher with a proven track record in immunological research and ideally with expertise in T cell biology and/or T cell receptor sequencing. Applicants need to hold a PhD or equivalent doctoral degree.
