Flow Cytometry Operator (f/m/d)
Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology - Hans Knöll Institute (HKI), Jena
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/m/d)
for 2 years initially with a possibility of extension to 5 years.
Research 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.
