The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute – (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de/en) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.
The Research Group Systems Biology and Bioinformatics invites talented and highly gifted candidates to apply for a
for 3 years initially.
The Systems Biology & Bioinformatics (SBI) group of the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology, Hans Knöll Institute (HKI), Jena, Germany, is seeking a PhD student in the area of multi-omics integration to develop novel therapeutic treatments for infectious diseases. SBI is active participant of several national and international collaborations aiming to tackle infectious diseases. The successful candidate will work on the identification of host biomarker signatures that can enable early diagnosis of infections and sepsis, and that can trigger early pre-symptomatic treatment. Appropriate subsets of sepsis patients to target with novel therapies will be indentified and combinatorial therapies will be designed and validated in preclinical and clinical studies. He / she will work closely with wet-lab scientists and clinicians to discover new molecular mechanisms of pathogens.
A strong interest in conducting collaborative research on the topic outlined above is paramount. Candidates are expected to be interested in working at the boundaries of several research domains.
The successful candidates will be hosted at HKI’s SBI group. We offer an international and multi-disciplinary environment with a strong expertise in the proposed research field and a convivial working atmosphere in an interdisciplinary and international research environment. Currently the group consists of approximately 15 members at different levels of seniority.
SBI is currently coordinating a Marie Curie ITN Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme and is an active participant of the Cluster of Excellence “Balance of the Microverse” and CRC / Transregio 124 “Pathogenic fungi and their human host: Networks of interaction” funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. More information on the research output of the group can be found here.
Salary is according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). As an equal opportunity employer the HKI is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply.
