The Institute of Physiological Chemistry, Medical Faculty Carl Gustav Carus, TU Dresden offers within the DFG Schwerpunktprogramm `Osteoimmunology – IMMUNOBONE – A Program to unravel the Mutual Interactions between the Immune System and Bone` (SPP 1468)
2 PhD student positions, available immediately (50% TV-L, E13).
The aim of both PhD projects is to investigate the complex interactions between bone and the immune system focusing on the role of SWAP-70 in the regulatory interplay of cells of the immune system and osteoclasts.
Applicants should hold a degree in biology, biochemistry or an equivalent degree in other life sciences. We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong interest in Immunology/Hematology/Bone Biology, who should have good English communication skills. Previous experience in cellular immunology and/or flow cytometry is a plus but not necessity.
Both positions offer an excellent opportunity to obtain expertise in a wide spectrum of cell biology techniques, animal models for human diseases, biochemistry, while working in a stimulating, international environment.
Applications including the names and contact details of two references should be submitted preferably by email with registration number ZIK0910070 until 30th June 2010 to:
