Research Fellow, Microbiology and Immunology
The research fellow will join an active and dynamic team that studies the molecular basis of chronic inflammatory diseases.
Currently, the team addresses the role of the MAP kinase p38 in causing liver inflammation. The team is using the most advanced experimental tools and approaches, primarily a novel mouse model for human diseases established by the team. The model is open for new ideas and fresh initiatives and the incumbent is expected to take part in actual experimentation as well as in devising ideas and designing strategies.
He/ She will run an independent project, in close collaboration with all members of the team.
Qualifications and Skills:
