The Virology (chair: Professor Oliver T. Keppler) of the Max von Pettenkofer Institute
at LMU Munich, Germany, offers a
Postdoctoral Position in Coronavirus Research (m/f/d), E13, full time
for 30 months in the laboratory of Professor Keppler
The continued emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants-of-concern poses a major challenge for the control of the pandemic. We are interested in understanding the evolution and mechanisms of immune evasion of SARS-CoV-2 and the development of antiviral strategies. We have developed novel assays to study adaptive immunity against SARS-CoV-2 including neutralising antibodies in the biosafety 3 laboratory (Wratil et al., Nature Medicine 2022; Keppler-Hafkemeyer et al., Nature Cancer 2022) and demonstrated the antiviral efficacy of innovative click-chemistry modified, stablized siRNAs (Traube et al., Angewandte Chemie 2022). We now seek to optimize such antiviral approaches that are being advanced as part of a highly interdisciplinary consortium.
The successful candidate will have an outstanding publication record and practical experience in virology (ideally at biosafety level 3), molecular biology, biochemistry and/or immunology. We expect a strong interest in virology, the ability to perform creative and independent research, and a very high level of motivation. We offer a highly interesting research topic with great biomedical relevance in a stimulating and interactive scientific environment at an internationally competitive level. The LMU research campus offers world class collaborations and access to core facilities.
Please send your applications with full CV including list of publications, letter of motivation, and references until March 31, 2023 to email@example.com .
