Descripció:


ThFriedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI) is one of the world's leading research institutes in the field of animal diseases, animal welfare, animal husbandry, animal nutrition and farm animal genetics. It is part of the portfolio of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture and informs and advises the Federal Government in these areas.
The Institute of Immunology, at the headquarters in Greifswald – Insel Riems is looking for a
Scientific Employee (m/f/d)
to start a soon as possible on a full-time basis. The position is limited to two years as part of a probationary leadership. If the candidate proves himself, he/she will be offered a permanent position.
Tasks:
The successful candidate will study the immunology of B cells during infection and will build up an independent research group. Investigations should characterize B cell populations and antibody repertoires in livestock and wildlife by combining experimental tools and bioinformatics. Analysis of antigen specificities, BCR repertoires and antibody features should promote design of novel interventions against notifiable animal diseases and/or zoonoses. Analysis of immune responses should be explored in a comparative approach, including experiments in high containment laboratories (safety level 2 and 3).
Investigations on B cell responses during bacterial and viral infection
Combine experimental tools and bioinformatics to functionally analyze BCR/antibody repertoires
Application of state-of-the-art and high-throughput technologies to define BCR and antibody specificities (e.g. single cell/AIR sequencing, cloning, binding assays, CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing)
Development of an advanced serology pipeline for livestock
Requirements:
University degree in biosciences
PhD in Immunology, Infection Biology or related Biosciences
Proven expertise in B cell immunology and bioinformatics
Assets for the position are:
Experience in development and refinement of high-content high-resolution platforms for BCR/antibody investigations
Experience in supervision of trainees
Expertise in work with infectious organisms
Excellent communication skills in English
For this position, the experience in establishing investigation platforms as well as methodologies are mandatory. In addition, the candidate should be capable of interdisciplinary work.
The job involves working in a biosecurity environment, which requires a security clearance according to the Security Clearance Act (Sicherheitsüberprüfungsgesetz, SÜG) and special protective measures against health hazards. Mental and physical suitability is therefore a prerequisite for filling the position.
In addition to an interesting and diverse job in an international and scientifically interesting environment, we offer you to work in highly motivated multicultural and diverse team as well as an employment according to the collective agreement of the public service (pay group 14 TVöD- Bund, tarif area east).
The Friedrich Loeffler Institute is committed to a family-friendly working environment through flexible working hours and the basic option of part-time employment. Our social benefits include company health and reintegration management, company social counselling and capital-forming benefits.
The FLI is also committed to inclusion. Applications from people with severe disabilities are therefore explicitly welcome. They will be given preferential consideration in the selection process. In line with our international orientation, we welcome applications from people of all nationalities and ethnicities.
