The University of Cologne is one of the largest and most research-intensive universities in Germany, offering a wide range of subjects. With its six faculties and its interfaculty centres, it offers a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines and internationally outstanding profile areas, supported by the administration with its services.
In the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1218 on “mitochondrial regulation of cellular function” (www.sfb1218.uni-koeln.de ) scientists from different research institutions in Cologne have teamed up to study how mitochondria influence activity, differentiation and survival of the cell. The Corrado lab is part of Cologne Excellence Cluster on Cellular Responses in Aging-associated Diseases (CECAD) at the University of Cologne. Research in the Corrado laboratory focuses on how metabolism influences immune function and in particular how cardiolipin synthesis and remodeling modulate immune cell function in the context of infections, cancer, aging and inflammation. In the framework of the CRC1218, the Corrado lab searches for a doctoral candidate.
- The doctoral candidate will use a variety of in vitro biochemical and cell biological methods including unbiased -omics experiments, cytofluorimetry and imaging as well as in vivo experimental approaches to uncover molecular mechanisms and functions of cardiolipin synthesis and remodeling in immunity.
- We search for doctoral candidate ( Master Degree in Biology or Biotechnology) with a background in immunology, biochemistry, or molecular medicine.
