The Klinikum rechts der Isar university hospital of the Technical University of Munich is a major European center of medical care and education and teaching with 1,161 beds and around 5,500 employees. Every year around 60,000 patients benefit from inpatient and around 250,000 patients from outpatient care. The hospital is a supra-maximal care home that covers the entire spectrum of modern medicine. Since 2003, the Klinikum rechts der Isar is an institute of public law of the Free State of Bavaria.
The research group of Prof. Dr. Bassermann is part of Department of Internal Medicine III (Hematology and Oncology) and is located at TranslaTUM – Central Institute for Translational Cancer Research. It is well embedded in the Munich biomedical research community and research centers such as the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK), and the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Centers 1335 “Aberrant Immune Signals in Cancer” and 1243 “Cancer Evolution” and European Research Council (ERC).
The group investigates how posttranslational mechanisms, particularly the ubiquitin system, regulates core aspects of cancer related cellular processes such as the cell cycle, immune and DNA damage responses, metabolism and programmed cell death. Special interest is how aberrant functions of this system contribute to the pathogenesis and maintenance of cancer and how these can serve as therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

1 Postdoc position (m/f/x)
Successful candidates will employ state-of-the-art experimental approaches and cutting-edge analysis tools to pursue projects in molecular and cellular immunology. The research group headed by Christina Zielinski focusses on human T cell immunology and questions related to the generation, maintenance and plasticity of human T helper cells in health and disease (Zielinski et al. Nature 2012, Noster et al. Sci Transl Med 2015, Matthias et al. Sci Transl Med 2019). The prospective candidate will have to opportunity to investigate the regulation of the human tissue resident T cells.
The ideal candidate should be a highly motivated PhD, MD or MD/PhD with an excellent productivity record and experience in flow cytometry, cell culture and high-dimensional single-cell data analysis. Bioinformatic programming skills are a plus. The candidate should be a team player and have excellent communications skills. Experienced postdoctoral candidates will be given the opportunity to supervise students and to develop their own independent research agenda.
- 4-year contract (E13, TV-L 100%)
- A highly dynamic young team in a thriving research environment at Germany’s top university
- Highly-funded and very well equipped modern lab
- Powerful core facility support
The Technical University of Munich is committed to a family-oriented policy and an equal opportunity employer. We are looking to fill the position as soon as possible.
Applications with a motivation letter, CV, references or referee contacts should be sent by email to Prof. Christina Zielinski (firstname.lastname@example.org(link sends e-mail)).
