Research Assistant - 0.65 working time - salary grade E 13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen
In project 7 (Immune modulatory effects of trace element combinations in the aging immune system) of the DFG research group 2558 (TraceAge) we will investigate the role of zinc and other trace elements in inflammatory processes during ageing. This includes measuring zinc and inflammatory markers in serum samples of existing test cohorts, the detection of free zinc in cells and tissues using fluorescent probes, and investigating the signal transduction of the IL-2 receptor in T cells and of Toll-like receptor-4 in macrophages.
Successfully completed academic studies in the life sciences (Master, Diplom or equivalent), e.g., in the areas of biology, biochemistry, chemistry, food chemistry or toxicology. The ability to work in an interdisciplinary team, excellent communication skills and a high motivation to bring own ideas to the project are expected. Experience with cell culture and common methods of molecular biology are an advantage. Very good English communication skills are a prerequisite.
