PhD position in “in vivo molecular imaging of microbiome modulation” (f/m/d)

We are looking for a highly motivated student with a drive to push the boundaries of science while learning new techniques. A strong background in (micro)biology and a keen interest in imaging science are required. The ideal candidate will have a biology, microbiology, biotechnology or molecular medicine background with a profound interest in in vivo imaging techniques (PET, MRI, CT) for infectious diseases. Fluency in English is required. The specific PhD project will develop a novel preclinical Positron Emission Tomography (PET) approach based on metabolic engineering enabled click chemistry of radiotracers to enable highly sensitive, quantitative and species-specific imaging of both commensal gut bacteria and pathogenic bacteria in vivo.

Application deadline: 24.06.2022

Lab rotations and Master Thesis:

We are looking for motivated and talented Master students in the field of biology, biochemistry or medical technologies eager to work and evolve in a highly interdisciplinary environment for a project on the role of senescence in lung diseases. This project aims at investigating cellular changes during the onset of fibrosis first at the in vitro level using cell culture and analysis techniques, with a view on in vivo application using PET and MRI imaging.
