PhD position (E13 TV-L, 100%) – Host-pathogen interactions & biomechanics

University of Tübingen
Descripción de la oferta

The Cluster of Excellence “Controlling Microbes to Fight Infections”(CMFI) in the Interfaculty Institute of Microbiology & Infection Medicine (IMIT) at the University of Tübingen is looking to fill one postdoctoral position (E13 TV-L, 100%) as part of Junior Group Leader Dr. Effie Bastounis’ research group. The earliest starting date for this position will be on 20.05.2021. The position is funded for a period of three years at least. The available position focuses on using and further developing an organotypic device for applying shear stresses onto host endothelial cells during infection with intracellular bacterial pathogens. The goal is to understand the mechanism whereby fluid shear stresses impact: (1) pathogen adhesion onto host cells; (2) pathogen internalization into host cells; and (3) the ability of the intracellular pathogens to spread from cell to cell.

Perfil buscado
  • Ph.D. in biomedical engineering/bioengineering or related life sciences or engineering fiel.
  • Experience with microscopy, image processing and programming (e.g. MATLAB, python).
  • Experience with in vitro mammalian cell cultures systems.
  • Excellent communication and initiative skills.
  • Ability to team up with others to conduct interdisciplinary studies.
