Post-Doctoral Position Available at the Institute of Innate Immunity - University of Bonn
The Institute of Innate Immunity is the first of its kind in Europe and has quickly been renowned as the centre for innate immunity research in the world. The institute was first established at the University of Bonn in 2010.
Our main research focus are:
1) To elucidate how the innate immune system maintains health and under which circumstances it promotes diseases.
2) To study and develop novel therapeutic approaches for inflammatory diseases.
A full-time position for a post-doctoral researcher is available in the laboratory of Bernardo Franklin (AG Franklin), starting in February/March 2019.

The successful appointee will join an exciting project where we will target inflammasome molecules for the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop their research career(s) within a multidisciplinary research environment, where he/she will have the opportunity to supervise postgraduate students and to apply for their own research funding.
Applicants should possess a PhD, be fluent in English and have a strong track record in innate immunity, inflammation, cell death, or host-pathogen interactions. A broad skill base, including molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, immunological assays and in vivo murine models is highly desirable. Although we would consider applications from highly accomplished researchers that have recently acquired their PhD certificate, a previous post-doctoral experience is desirable. We particularly value candidates with additional background or strong knowledge of bioinformatics and large data analysis. Applicants should possess a strong desire to develop a successful and highly-productive research career in immunological research, excellent general research skills, a strong methodological background, excellent writing abilities, and the capacity to work both independently and within a team.
Curriculum Vitae of interested candidates should be sent to: email@example.com
Together with at least two letters of recommendations from past supervisors or close collaborators.
