Postdoctoral Scientist in Immunology / Cell Biology (f/m/x)

The Center for Regenerative Therapies of the TU Dresden is a research center with currently 22 research groups and 250 employees. The research focus of the CRTD is on regeneration and stem cell research, with research approaches ranging from basic research to application in a clinical-translational context, thereby laying the foundations for novel diagnoses and therapies.

The Bonifacio group offers as soon as possible a position for an outstanding applicant with scientific qualification as 

Postdoctoral Scientist in Immunology/Cell Biology (f/m/x) 

in full or part time currently limited to 22 month. Remuneration is in accordance with the grouping regulations of the collective agreement for the public service of the federal states (TV-L).

This position is provided through the Helmsley Charitable Trust project "Genomic influence of maternal type 1 diabetes - understanding protection against type 1 diabetes".

Type I diabetes is characterized by insulin deficiency primarily caused by the autoimmune-mediated destruction of insulin secreting pancreatic islet beta cells. Understanding how the autoimmunity initiates and is perpetuated is relevant to introducing therapies that will prevent beta cell destructive immunity. The risk to develop type 1 diabetes in children born to mothers with type 1 diabetes is around half that of children born to fathers with type 1 diabetes. This ambitious project will explore protective mechanisms against the development of type 1 diabetes by maternal diabetes with a focus on in vitro effects of a maternal type 1 diabetes environment on hematopoietic stem cells and innate immune cells. Within this project, you will design, conduct and evaluate experiments independently. You will work with various molecular, cell biological and immunological methods, such as multi color flow cytometry and cell sorting, isolation and culture of primary human cells and RNAseq. The project is interdisciplinary, including cooperation with clinicians.

Your Profile:

  • PhD in life sciences with a background in cellular and molecular immunology
  • high motivation and enthusiasm to work independently as well as a part of an interdisciplinary international team
  • Experience in work with primary cell culture
  • skills in multicolor flow cytometry, cell sorting by FACS and genome biology are preferred
  • open to learn new technologies
  • Independent thinking
  • Interest and experience in Bioinformatics is a plus
  • Excellent writing and communication skills
  • Excellent English language skills

We offer:

  • An independent and creative position
