PhD position (f/m/d)

Neuroimmune interactions in the Gut

A Ph.D. position is available from 01.04.2021 within the framework of the Transregio consortium Erlangen-Berlin.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate willing to take on an independent research project that investigates neuro-immune-epithelial interactions in the gastrointestinal tract. The Becker laboratory investigates programmed cell death pathways and how they affect the development, progression, and resolution of chronic gastrointestinal inflammatory disorders.

The project will focus on neuro-immune-epithelial-microbial crosstalk employing a wide variety of methods. These include primary neuronal culturing, 3D organoid culturing and co-culturing from transgenic mouse models and patient biopsies, viral and CRISPR-CAS9 mediated gene editing, transcriptomic and metagenomics profiling, lineage tracing in transgenic mouse models.
