Careers

Internship (followed by a master thesis project)

An internship is open as part of a research project on development of a novel therapeutic approach for invasive fungal infections in immunocompromised individuals. This project addresses an unmet clinical need for novel antifungal agents, as currently available therapeutic options are limited due to emerging fungal resistance, severe side effects and toxicity). Our project aims at identifying novel antifungal targets through in vitro and in vivo screenings of a fungal deletion mutant library, followed by developing specific inhibitors for individual targets.

Successful internship candidates will learn and employ various research methods such as fungal culture, fluorescence microscopy, and animal handling. For interested and highly motivated candidates, this internship can lead to a master thesis project regarding optimization of a new model for in vivo screening of the mutant library. The successful applicant will have basic lab experience and good communication skills in English. Interested applicants should send their electronic application and CV to:

Internship (followed by a master thesis project)

An internship is open as part of a research project on interactions of cancer with the bone marrow microenvironment. Despite treatment advances in the past decades for multiple myeloma (MM), patients suffering from this disease of malignant plasma cells remain largely incurable. In our research project we investigate MM, which appears to depend on cell adhesion molecule mediated interactions with the local niches in the bone marrow.  Exploring these interactions holds great promise for developing new treatment strategies for MM. 

Successful internship candidates will learn and employ various research methods such as state of the art multiparameter flow cytometry and microscopy techniques. For interested and highly motivated candidates, this internship can lead to a master thesis project on cellular and molecular interactions of the tumor microenvironment. The successful applicant will have basic lab experience and good communication skills in English. Interested applicants should send their electronic application and CV to:

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:

Internship/Bachelor/Master thesis

Open Master Project

Antigen presentation to alloreactive T cells

A master thesis project is available to study the antigen presentation in acute graft-versus-host disease (aGvHD). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a curable therapy for certain malignancies. Nevertheless, 30–60% of HSCT patients develop aGvHD, which is caused by allogeneic T-cells attacking host tissues. In our lab, we are investigating how defined cell types boost aGvHD initiation.

Successful candidates will employ a broad array of research methods such as cell culture, flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, and in vivo mouse models. Interested and highly motivated candidates will be given the opportunity to participate in an interdisciplinary translational research project.

Interested applicants should have basic lab experience (preferably with immunology background) and good communication skills in English.

Interested applicants should send their electronic application & 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.
