The group of Dr. Barbara Schraml is looking for a postdoc to help dissect the developmental and functional heterogeneity of dendritic cells in health and disease. Dendritic cells are versatile controllers of immunity with crucial roles in innate and adaptive immunity. In neonates these cells are qualitatively distinct from adults, presumably to establish early life immune balance essential for survival. The project that will be led by the candidate aims to define the mechanisms underlying the age-dependent regulation of dendritic cell function using in vivo mouse models, functional genomics and single cell technologies, as well as innovative imaging techniques.
The position is available in the group of Dr. Barbara Schraml at the Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich, Germany and is funded by a Starting Grant from European Research Council. The post is located in state of the art laboratories at the new Biomedical Center of the LMU with access to excellent dedicated core facilities for flow cytometry, bioimaging and bioinformatics.
