Position Description

The Institute for Molecular Virology (groups of Prof. Kirchhoff and Jun.-Prof. Sauter) at the Ulm University Medical Center offers positions for a postdoctoral fellow, a PhD student and master students to participate in research focusing on the pathogenesis of AIDS. The candidates will investigate cellular factors that are involved in viral immune sensing and the host defense against HIV as well as their viral antagonists. Their work will help to define the mechanisms underlying the high levels of immune activation in HIV-infected individuals that drive progression to AIDS and may uncover entirely novel mechanisms of antiviral immunity.
Ideal candidates will be excited to do fascinating science together with an international team of highly cooperative and competent lab members. They will be creative, curious, highly motivated, and have a strong background in cell biology, immunology or virology. Applicants can read, write and speak English fluently, are familiar with Microsoft office, have a strong ability to learn new techniques and to advance their scientific projects. We seek candidates with a strong interest in virology and a desire to pursue a career in research.
The Ulm University Medical Center is an equal opportunity employer and aims at increasing the proportion of female researchers. Thus, applications by women are strongly encouraged. Disabled candidates will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.
