About Us
We are offering a Postdoctoral Scientist Position available until 31st March 2017 which is a training and development position for post-doctoral scientists.

About the Role
You should be interested in understanding the molecular basis of the host immune response to different strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and show interest in the research recently published by Anne O’Garra’s group in Nature 2010 regarding potential factors underlying the pathogenesis of tuberculosis. The project will be to test potential pathways/targets identified in the blood transcriptome of human tuberculosis, starting with Type I IFN-inducible genes, such including Tripartite motif-containing proteins (TRIMs), by their elimination or perturbation in mouse models of tuberculosis and other bacterial infections for their role in protection or pathogenesis. In addition, the project will require to define molecular mechanisms underlying such pathways affecting tuberculosis protection/pathogenesis and that of other bacterial infections, and during co-infection, initiating with Type I IFN and Type I IFN-inducible genes, such as TRIMs, in macrophages, dendritic cells, inflammatory monocytes and neutrophils where the pathways have been deleted or perturbed. This will be studied in the context of infection with different strains of M. tuberculosis and other bacterial infections, in both mouse and human cells, but also with Pathogen-Associated Molecular Patterns (PAMPs) so as to delineate molecular mechanisms underlying this using a variety of molecular and biochemical methods as pathways of defence or pathogenesis.

To Join us you will need;

• A PhD (or in final stages of completion) in molecular immunology
• Experience in Molecular immunology, mechanisms of signal transduction and transcriptional regulation, preferably in innate cells and in vivo mouse work
• Knowledge of the regulation of protection or pathogenesis in infection and experience of working in mouse models
• An excellent knowledge of the literature of downstream pathways regulating innate immune responses in innate cells

5679| CeMM - Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Boztug group| ERC-funded Post-doctoral Fellowship in Immunology and/or Genetics| The Boztug laboratory at CeMM, the Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, seeks to fill the open position of a Post-Doctoral Fellow (junior or senior level). The focus of the group is to identify novel gene defects underlying pathological states of the human immune system and to dissect the molecular mechanisms of these disorders. The ultimate aim is to understand the immune response at the molecular level leading to better treatment options (for some recent publications see e.g., Boztug K et al NEJM 2009; Glocker EO*, Kotlarz D*, Boztug K* et al NEJM 2009; Salzer E et al Blood 2013, Boztug K et al Nature Genet 2014, Willmann K et al Nature Communications in press).

The Project:
Inherited defects of the immune system (so-termed “primary immunodeficiencies”, PID) represent unique models to dissect essential components of the immune system in natura. A considerable number of PIDs is characterized by autoimmunity or autoinflammation. Many human diseases are characterized by a multitude of autoimmune phenomena, however, the molecular mechanisms are often poorly understood.

In this project, the successful candidate will use high-throughput genomics approaches including high-resolution SNP arrays and next generation sequencing on a large number of pedigrees. Functional proteomics of protein complexes will be used to mine, uncover and pathway-map gene defects underlying inherited disorders of the immune system with predominant autoimmunity/autoinflammation. The genetic discovery pipeline is complemented by biochemical, immunological and imaging technologies to obtain molecular gene-to-phenotype relationships.

The Candidate:
Interested candidates should have a strong background in Immunology, Genetics, Medicine and/or Molecular Biology and need to have a PhD (respectively DVM/MD or equivalent) degree. Candidates who are just about to finish their doctoral studies are also very welcome to apply.
The ideal candidate will have an excellent work ethic and very good communication skills. Enthusiasm, self-motivation, creativity as well as a proactive approach to solving problems and developing new ideas are highly desirable. We seek a candidate who is able to connect different scientific disciplines and think outside the box.

The Principal Investigator:
Kaan Boztug studied Medicine in Düsseldorf, Freiburg and London. He gained graduate and postgraduate research training at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA, USA and at Hannover Medical School. He joined CeMM as Principal Investigator in 2011 and holds a dual appointment as Assistant Professor at the Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine at the Medical University of Vienna and the Vienna General Hospital, the largest academic hospital in Europe. He is also co-director of the Jeffrey Modell Diagnostic and Research Center for Primary Immunodeficiencies (www.meduniwien.ac.at/ccid) and involved in numerous research initiatives for patients with rare and undiagnosed diseases worldwide. He has recently been awarded the prestigious START Prize of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the highest research prize for young researchers in Austria, as well as a Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC StG).


The Boztug Laboratory:
is a fully equipped molecular biology laboratory in a shared environment with cell culture and multi-color flow cytometry on the same floor within a brand new building. All equipment needed for state-of-the art genomic investigations such as SNP arrays and deep sequencing are immediately accessible on the same floor of the building. The group is embedded in a multidisciplinary and highly collaborative systems biology/molecular medicine research environment providing access to state-of-the-art mass-spectrometry, bioinformatics, automated chemical biological screening platform and animal facilities, including BSL2 suites.
