Postdoctoral researcher in the field of Intestinal Microbiology/Microbiome
Technische Universität München

Postdoctoral researcher (m/f/d) in the field of Intestinal Microbiology/Microbiome
About us
The research activities at the Chair of Nutrition and Immunology, headed by Prof. Dr. Dirk Haller, are focused on Nutrition and Microbiome. The intestinal microbiome plays a fundamental role in the regulation of human health. Changes in the composition and function of this complex microbial ecosystem contribute to the development of chronic intestinal diseases, including inflammatory bowel diseases and colorectal cancer. The current hypothesis suggests that genetic, environmental (i.e. nutrition), and microbial factors orchestrate the pathophysiology of these interrelated diseases. The isolation of intestinal bacteria and the identification of disease-associated microbial factors are key to understand microbe-host interactions, which forms a major scientific focus of the Chair of Nutrition and Immunology. 

The Chair is integrated into the ZIEL - Institute for Food & Heath at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), one of Europe’s top universities. TUM is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young scientists. 

Candidate profile
We are looking for an outstanding self-motivated postdoctoral researcher. The candidate should have a strong track record and experience in microbiology (e.g. high-throughput sequencing, microbial ecology) and should be willing to work on the isolation and cultivation of bacteria and is expected to work with mouse models. The candidate should also have the ambition and commitment to achieve excellence in a highly productive environment. 

Our offer
We offer a challenging interdisciplinary project at the interface of nutrition, microbiome research and biomedicine, well-equipped laboratories with top-notch facilities (germ-free mouse house, high-throughput techniques for sequencing and mass spectrometry) and a fruitful scientific atmosphere. The postdoctoral candidate will be involved in projects of the DFG funded Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1371 Microbiome Signatures. 
The position is immediately available and funded for 2 + 1 years. Salary will be determined according to the German collective wage agreement in public service (TV-L 13). 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please send your electronic application preferably in one single pdf-document by latest August 30, 2019
