PhD Scholarship Position at Technical University of Munich

Technical University of Munich is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in microbiology. The funds for this fellowship are available for three years. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible.

The new lab "Engineering Immune Cells for Therapy" at the Institute for Medical Microbiology, Immunology and Hygiene (MIH) at Technical University Munich is offering a PhD student position. The lab studies transcriptional regulation in human T cells and explores novel CRISPR technologies for T cell engineering for experimental and therapeutic purposes (Schumann & Lin et al. 2015, PNAS; Hultquist & Schumann et al. 2016, Cell Reports; Rupp & Schumann et al. 2017 Scientific Reports). Moving forward we want to apply these technologies to human regulatory T cells, a T cell subset that plays a fundamental role in autoimmune diseases and cancer. We will dissect which transcription factors are regulating their cellular identitiy and how these transcriptional signals are integrated at enhancers.

We are a young team and looking for a highly motivated student with a strong interest in immunology and genetics. The successful candidate should have completed a master's degree (or equivalent) and be committed to interdisciplinary research in a collaborative research environment.

The doctoral candidate will be employed by TUM (65 % TV-L E13) for a total duration of three years (with possible extension). TUM is an equal opportunity employer. Therefore, women are especially encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications.

Please include a CV, brief summary of your previous work experience, a short statement of why you chose to apply for this position and contact information of referees.
