Research Areas: Microbiology, Mycology, RNA Biochemistry
This project is part of a Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF)-funded research group that is bringing together the study of pathogenic fungi, RNA biology, and extracellular vesicles to better understand and treat fungal infections.
The successful candidate will investigate the field of fungal pathogenesis through the lens of RNA biology. The main topics of the project may include:
The successful candidate will be hosted in the Junior Research Group RNA Biology of Fungal Infections led by Dr. Matthew G. Blango. The aim of the group is to conduct innovative, cutting-edge research on fungal pathogenesis with a focus on extracellular vesicles and RNA biology. The Leibniz-HKI is embedded in the outstanding scientific environment of the Beutenberg Campus providing state-of-the-art research facilities and a highly integrative network of life science groups. The PhD candidate will participate in the structured program of the International Leibniz Research School and become an associated member of the Jena School of Microbial Communication.
Salary is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). As an equal opportunity employer, the Leibniz-HKI is committed to increasing the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply. The anticipated start date is November 1st, 2021.
