PhD position available in Physiology/Immunology, LMU Munich

A position is immediately available in the group of Prof. Dr. Markus Sperandio at the Walter Brendel Center for Experimental Medicine, Ludwig-Maximilians Universität, München, Germany. The PhD student will join a dedicated team focusing on the role of the mammalian sterile 20-like kinase-1 (MST1) in leukocyte trafficking (see also Kurz et al. J Clin Invest 2016). The project is embedded in the Collaboration Research Center CRC914 (Sonderforschungsbereich SFB914) on leukocyte trafficking funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG).
The prospective doctoral student will apply a variety of experimental in vivo as well as in vitro approaches including multiphoton laser scanning intravital microscopy, in vitro flow chamber assays, immunostaining, and FACS to dissect the contribution on MST1 for the different steps during leukocyte recruitment.
The highly motivated candidate should hold a diploma or masters in biology, biochemistry, veterinary medicine or related fields and preferably have some experience in animal experiments.
Applications of women are specifically invited. In the case of similar qualifications, competence, and specific achievements, women will be considered on preferential terms within the framework of the legal possibilities. Handicapped candidates with equivalent qualifications will be given preference.
