Es besteht grundsätzlich die Möglichkeit der Teilzeitbeschäftigung.

Die Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) ist eine der renommiertesten und größten Universitäten Deutschlands.


Children and adults have distinct immune reactivity and, thus, differ in their susceptibility to certain pathogens. Dendritic cells are versatile controllers of immunity that in neonates are qualitatively distinct from adults. Why such age-dependent differences exist is unclear but newborn dendritic cells are often considered underdeveloped and functionally immature. The candidate will use in vivo mouse models to deplete and genetically modify dendritic cells coupled to ex vivo functional analyses and single cell technologies (such as single cell RNASeq, multiparameter flow cytometry) to decipher how dendritic cells are regulated with age. We aim to understand the mechanisms underlying age-dependent regulation of dendritic cell development and function and to dissect the ability of early life DC to induce protective immune responses in settings of vaccination. The position is available in the group of Barbara Schraml at the

Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich, Germany.

We offer:

  • A young international team

  • State of the art laboratories at the Biomedical Center of the LMU at the Research Campus Martinsried

  • Access to dedicated core facilities for flow cytometry, bioimaging and bioinformatics

  • The possibility to teach at one of the leading medical universities in the country


We are looking for:

  • A creative team player wanting to take an active role in a young, dynamic and international research team
  • Active involvement in teaching as part of the core curriculum of the LMU
  • Proficiency in German and English is required

  • Expertise in flow cytometry, gene expression profiling and/or working with in vivo models
  • You should hold a doctoral degree in Immunology, Cell Biology or Physiology or the like
