PhD Position – Molecular Immunology & Experimental Oncology

Description:
Two open PhD positions are available at the Institute of Molecular Immunology & Experimental Oncology, Technical University of Munich.The institute addresses important questions about the regulation of immunity against hepatotropic infections and tumors in mice and men. Preclinical models are applied to investigate detailed mechanistic principles about anti-viral and anti-cancer immunity. Both projects are based on the identification of a novel T cell population that has tissue-destructive function (Dudek et al. Nature 2021). The third-party funded projects (DFG and Helmholtz) will investigatevirus-specific immunity against hepatitis B Virus infection and SARS-CoV-2 infection and how tissue-destructive T cells contribute to immune surveillance or immune pathology.
