The  Institute of Medical Microbiology (Head: Prof. Dr. D. Schlueter) of the OvG University  of Magdeburg (Germany) offers a

Postdoc position in Molecular Immunology

Topic of the project is the analysis of the functional role of deubiquitinylases (DUBs) in the regulation of immune responses. In these projects cell type-specific knockout mice for A20, CYLD and other DUBs will be used. The functional analysis of DUBs will be performed in murine model of infectious diseases (listeriosis, toxoplasmosis) and autoimmune disorders (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis). The combined in vivo and in vitro experiments include immunological (cell proliferation assays, cytotoxic T cell assays, FACS, MACS, cell culture), molecular biological (PCR, siRNA, transfection) and biochemical (WB, EMSA) techniques. We are a team of immunologists and microbiologists searching for a highly motivated candidate. Applications of candidates with a degree in biology, biochemistry, medicine or veterinary medicine are welcome. Previous publications of the group include Haroon et al., (2011), J. Immunol. 186: 6521; Hövelmeyer et al. (2011) Eur. J. Immunol. 41: 595!
