Clinical Virology Department

The Virology (chair: Professor Oliver T. Keppler) of the Max von Pettenkofer Institute, at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Munich, Germany offers a Postdoctoral Position in Coronavirus Research (E13, full time) for three years in the laboratory of Dr. Maximilian Muenchhoff. The recent emergence of several SARS-CoV-2 variants-of-concern (VOC) with substantially increased transmissibility and pathogenicity poses a major challenge for the control of the pandemic. We are interested in understanding the evolution and mechanisms of immune evasion of SARS-CoV-2. We have established a platform for genomic surveillance and developed novel assays to study adaptive immunity against SARS-CoV-2 including neutralising antibodies in the biosafety 3 laboratory. We now seek to elucidate immune escape pathways that SARS-CoV-2 utilizes to evade antibody and T
cell responses elicited by vaccination and infection. The successful candidate will have an outstanding publication record and practical experience in virology, molecular biology, biochemistry and/or immunology. We expect a strong interest in virology, the ability to perform creative and independent research, and a very high level of motivation. We offer a highly interesting research topic with great
biomedical relevance in a stimulating and interactive scientific environment at an internationally competitive level. The LMU research campus in Großhadern/Martinsried, at which our brand-new laboratories are located, offers world class collaborations and access to core facilities. Please send your applications with full CV including list of publications, letter of motivation, and references until January 15, 2022 to muenchhoff@mvp.lmu.de.
