“c-Abl signal transduction in Helicobacter pylori infected epithelial

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented scientist in the field
 of cellular microbiology. In particular we are interested in the
 investigation of the molecular mechanism of how H. pylori promotes
 cellular survival and migration while preventing apoptosis. In our
 previous work, we identified a crucially important role of the non-
receptor tyrosine kinase c-Abl in H. pylori-infected gastric
 epithelial cells in these processes, but the molecular mechanisms of
 this novel cross-talk are still unknown. Since c-Abl already
 represents an attractive target molecule in drug intervention in
 certain neoplasia, increasing knowledge of c-Abl signaling obtained
 from this proposed project may also uncover novel strategies in
 therapeutic intervention of H. pylori-related diseases.

•       should have a strong background in cell biology, and either
 expertise in infection biology, or in molecular aspects of signal
•       are expected to be independent, scientific-orientated and self-
•       must have received their Ph.D. within the last five years with
 a proven publication record with at least one first author paper
•       have excellent communication and interpersonal skills
•       are competitive at international level
•       collaborate with internal and external collaborators and
