The Beilhack lab mission

Our goal is to make a lasting impact on the field of immunotherapy to improve the human condition. To make a great impact on the field, we must achieve the following tasks:

  • Perform well-designed experiments that lead us to exciting and novel discoveries and ultimately form the basis for future therapies.
  • Advance and master cutting-edge technologies to propel our endeavor.
  • Communicate our findings within and beyond the greater scientific community.
  • Mentor trainees to become some of the best scientists of their generation.

Open Positions:

Open PhD position in Immunology & Fungal Research

A PhD position is available full time to study the interactions between Aspergillus fumigatus and different immune cell population in mouse models of invasive aspergillosis in hematopoietic cell transplantation (e.g. Rieber et al. Cell Host Microbe 17: 507-514, 2015, Chopra et al. J Exp Med 213: 1881–1900, 2016, Kalleda et al. Front Microbiol 7:1107, 2016). Interested and highly motivated candidates will be given the opportunity to participate in an innovative translational research consortium (FungiNet) on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions after A. fumigatus infection. We conduct experiments with fluorescent and luminescent A. fumigatus strains, transgenic optical reporter mouse lines, in vivo bioluminescence imaging and state-of-the-art microscopy techniques, flow cytometry, and molecular biology methods.
A successful applicant will have prior experience in the molecular biology of fungal infections or immunology, experience and aptitude with cell culture techniques, molecular biology and/or regulation of gene expression or animal models and adoptive cellular transfer models and/or microscopy and a theoretical background in microbiology and/or immunology. Excellent communication skills are essential, fluency in English (both written and spoken) and the ability to work independently and together with a team.
Applications from severely handicapped persons with basically similar qualification will be given priority.

Compensation will be according to German TVL 13/65%.

Interested applicants should send their electronic application including a brief cover letter describing their previous research experience and current interests, updated CV, publication list and names of two potential referees to:

Internship/Bachelor/Master thesis

Therapeutic Nanoparticles for Human Pathogenic Fungi

A Bachelor/Master thesis project is available to study the delivery patterns of therapeutic nano-particles into human pathogenic fungi (e.g. Aspergillus fumigatus) and immune cell interactions (mouse/human) with A. fumigatus in presence of different nanoparticles. Successful candidates will employ a broad array of research methods such as cell culture, multiparameter flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, transfection, qRT-PCR and in vivo mouse models for invasive aspergillosis. Interested and highly motivated candidates will be given the opportunity to participate in an interdisciplinary translational research project.  

A successful applicant will have some basic lab experience and good communication skills in English.

Interested applicants should send their electronic application and CV to:

Immunobiology of Regulatory T cells (Tregs)

A Bachelor/Master thesis project is available to study the biology of human and mouse regulatory T cells, important signaling pathways and cell-cell-interactions of immune regulation in inflammation and cancer. Successful candidates will employ a broad array of research methods such as cell culture, immunological assays, multiparameter flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, transfection, qRT-PCR and in vivo mouse models of non-invasive optical imaging. Interested and highly motivated candidates will be given the opportunity to participate in an interdisciplinary translational research project.

A successful applicant will have some basic lab experience and good communication skills in English. Interested applicants should send their electronic application and CV to:
