Technical Assistant (BTA / MTA) (m/f/d) Leibniz-Institut für Immuntherapie (LIT), Regensburg

The LIT - Leibniz Institute for Immunotherapy (foundation under civil law) – is a biomedical research center focusing on translational immunology in the fields of cancer immunotherapy, transplant rejection and autoimmunity. The objective of the LIT is to develop efficient immune therapeutic strategies in these areas. The Schmidl lab is mainly interested in how our immune cells fight tumors, and investigates involved molecular and cellular mechanisms to improve the efficacy of immunotherapeutic applications.

The junior research group led by Christian Schmidl at the Leibniz Institute for Immunotherapy (LIT) is seeking an enthusiastic

Technical Assistant (BTA / MTA) (m/f/d)

part time (50%), limited to 2 years with possibility for extension

Your Profile

We look for a highly motivated colleague that is able to work independently, and who is eager to support a young lab. Being a team player as well as strong communication and organizational skills are necessary. Sufficient English skills to work in an international environment are mandatory. In addition to training in standard molecular and cellular methods such as western blot, PCR, cloning, cell culture, DNA and RNA isolation the applicant should bring experience in at least one of the following methods:

  • Immunological methods such as flow cytometry, cytokine assays, primary T cell isolation/culture
  • Animal work (mouse models)
  • CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing
  • Virus work (biosafety level 2)
  • Next-generation-sequencing
  • Main Tasks

    You will contribute to research projects investigating gene-regulatory mechanisms in primary immune cells in the tumor environment and stem cell transplantations. You will help to establish mouse models and use primary patient samples to contribute to the investigation of cellular and molecular mechanisms influencing the function of the immune system. In addition, you will receive training in next-generation-sequencing methods such as chromatin immunoprecipitation, chromatin accessibility mapping, and other sequencing library preparation approaches that will be used in the lab to decipher underlying (epi-)genetic mechanisms of immune regulation. As the technical assistant you will also be responsible for lab organizational tasks.

    What we offer

    Our lab offers the opportunity to work at the interface of immunology and cancer, which is one of the most exciting fields of recent biomedical research. We provide a dynamic and motivating working environment where you can foster your skills and get the opportunity to learn cutting-edge technologies such as next-generation-sequencing and CRISPR gene editing.

  • An international research environment that offers exciting and diverse opportunities
  • Responsible and varied field of activity
