The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology –
Hans Knöll Institute – (Leibniz-HKI, www. leibniz-hki.de) investigates the
pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the
development of novel natural product-based antibiotics. The department of
Infection Immunology invites talented and highly gifted candidates to
apply as a
Flow Cytometry Operator (f/div/m)
for two years initially with a possibility of extension to 5 years.
R esearch Areas:
The department of Infection Immunology addresses fundamental questions about
the mechanistic basis of human T cell memory formation, stabilization, and
modulation. It also investigates T cell communication with the local tissue
microenvironment in settings of infections, autoimmunity and cancer. This
research has unravelled several novel T cell functions and immunomodulatory
factors. The department uses novel cutting-edge technologies in the area of
high-dimensional single-cell analysis (scRNAseq, Spectral flow cytometry) to
translate fundamental insights into translational applications for human
health and disease.
A Master degree (or equivalent) or specialist technical training (BTA,
etc.) and experience in academia or in an industrial environment in the
area of flow cytometry.
You have earned outstanding skills in flow cytometric assays and gained
experience with flow cytometric data analysis tools.
You are able to perform cell sorting (BD FACSFusion) and flow cytometry
analysis (BD FACSFortessa, Cytec Aurora).
Combination of excellent technological understanding of flow cytometry and
scientific know-how in immunology.
You are able to work in an independent, quality-oriented fashion, and you
are open to new challenges.
Very good communication and collaboration skills in English are required,
German knowledge would be a plus.
The exciting opportunity to start a Flow Cytometry Service Unit in a top
institute with outstanding funding possibilities.
Long-term perspectives to work in a successful Flow Cytometry Service
A modern workplace in a brand-new building, with top equipment (Cytek
Participation in research projects in immunology
Possibility to participate in Immunmonitoring Studies with collaborators
Stimulating, interactive and international research environment
Salary is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service
employees). As an equal opportunity employer, the Leibniz-HKI is committed to
increasing the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially
encourages them to apply.
