Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Professor Björn Lillemeier in the Institute of Biology III at the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg (Germany). Our group is interested in the regulation of lymphocyte activity during immune responses. Current research efforts are focused on the activating T cell receptor (TCR) and inhibitory PD1 pathways in T cells. We apply multidisciplinary approaches including molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry and microscopy to study signaling mechanisms that control T cell activity and functions. Our goal is to modulate in vivo T cell responses for future immunotherapies against cancer and autoimmunity.

We encourage applicants from different areas in the life sciences with strong interest in immunology. Multiple projects are available to investigate T cell activation using biochemical or cellular approaches, or to test novel immunotherapy strategies in animal models. 

These positions require a qualified Ph.D. or doctorate and publication(s) in peer-reviewed journals.

To Apply:

Please include a letter of motivation, a description of research accomplishments and interests (max. 2 pages), CV with publication list and 3+ contact details for referees.

The position is limited to 30.06.2022. The salary will be determined in accordance with TV-L E13.

We are particularly pleased to receive applications from women for the position advertised here.
