Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar and Cel­lu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring (CMCB), Cen­ter for Rege­ne­ra­tive The­ra­pies Dres­den (CRTD), junior rese­arch group “Rege­ne­ra­tion of Com­plex Struc­tu­res in Adult Ver­te­bra­tes”

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion, employees are remu­n­e­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The junior rese­arch group of Dr Maxi­mina Yun is offe­ring a posi­tion, start date 01.01.2019.
The posi­tion is initi­ally limi­ted until 31.12.2021 with the option to be exten­ded. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - Wiss­ZeitVG). The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. habi­li­ta­tion the­sis).
The CRTD is one of the world's lea­ding Reg­Med cen­ters and forms the inter­face bet­ween basic rese­arch and cli­ni­cal app­li­ca­tion. The aim of the CRTD is to inves­ti­gate the body's self-hea­ling poten­tial and to deve­lop com­ple­tely new rege­ne­ra­tive the­ra­pies for pre­viously incura­ble disea­ses. The rese­arch focu­ses on the areas of hae­ma­to­logy and immu­no­logy, dia­be­tes, neu­ro­de­ge­ne­ra­tive disea­ses, bone and car­ti­lage repla­ce­ment as well as car­dio­vas­cu­lar disea­ses. Rese­arch at the CRTD is sup­por­ted by the joint tech­no­logy plat­form of the CMCB (infor­ma­tion on the joint tech­no­logy plat­form is avail­able at
The major aim of the junior rese­arch group’s rese­arch pro­gramme is to under­stand the mole­cu­lar and cel­lu­lar mecha­nisms under­ly­ing rege­ne­ra­tion in adult ver­te­bra­tes, using the sala­man­der (newts and axo­lotls) as model orga­nisms. The junior rese­arch group uses a broad range of mole­cu­lar, gene­tic, bio­che­mi­cal and advan­ced ima­ging tech­ni­ques to inves­ti­gate rege­ne­ra­tive pro­ces­ses ( and is also affi­lia­ted to the Max Planck Insti­tute of Mole­cu­lar Cell Bio­logy and Gene­tics (MPI-CBG) (

Work­ing field:

You will work on a pro­ject focu­sing on under­stan­ding the inter­play bet­ween cel­lu­lar sene­scence and the immune res­ponse, and the impact of these pro­ces­ses on rege­ne­ra­tion. You will carry out expe­ri­men­tal rese­arch using a com­bi­na­tion of tech­ni­ques inclu­ding sala­man­der (newt and axo­lotl) trans­ge­ne­sis, tis­sue cul­ture, expres­sion ana­ly­sis (RT-PCR, in situ hybri­di­sa­tion, RNA-seq), immu­n­o­histo­che­mis­try/fluo­re­scence, func­tio­nal stu­dies (small mole­cule tre­at­ments, CRISPR media­ted trans­ge­ne­sis) and ima­ging. You will be desi­gning and con­duc­ting expe­ri­ments, record­ing, ana­ly­sing and inter­pre­ting data, com­mu­ni­ca­ting results (writ­ten/oral), actively par­ti­ci­pa­ting in group and col­la­bo­ra­tor mee­tings, cont­ri­bu­ting to reports and publi­ca­ti­ons and pro­vi­ding gui­dance and super­vi­sion to other group mem­bers and stu­dents. In addi­tion, you will also be cont­ri­bu­ting to third party fun­ding app­li­ca­ti­ons.


We are loo­king for a highly moti­va­ted can­di­date with a uni­ver­sity degree and a Ph.D. in Bio­lo­gi­cal or Bio­me­di­cal Sci­en­ces or rela­ted sub­jects, who aims to deve­lop an inde­pen­dent rese­arch career. A strong back­ground in immu­no­logy, cel­lu­lar sene­scence and/or rege­ne­ra­tive bio­logy is requi­red. Expe­ri­ence in gene­tic engi­nee­ring, sin­gle cell ana­ly­sis, advan­ced ima­ging, bio­in­for­ma­tic ana­ly­sis and cell cul­ture are highly desi­ra­ble. Pre­vious expe­ri­ence working with sala­man­ders or other model sys­tems of rege­ne­ra­tion is desi­ra­ble but not essen­tial. Ability to work inde­pendently, show self-initia­tive and moti­va­tion to explore and deve­lop new tech­ni­ques and con­cepts are essen­tial. Excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tio­nal skills and flu­ency in Eng­lish are necessary for this posi­tion.

What we of­fer:

Infor­mal enqui­ries should be direc­ted to Dr. Maxi­mina Yun (
