Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI)Braunschweig, Hannover, Saarbrücken, Würzburg
At the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI, www.helmholtz-hzi.de)
in Braunschweig, scientists study bacterial and viral pathogens, their interactions with the host organism,
and innate and adaptive immune response mechanisms. With its long-standing history in natural product research,
the HZI and its subsidiaries, Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarbrücken (HIPS) and TWINCORE
Centre for Experimental and Clinical Infection Research in Hannover, also energetically pursue the discovery
and development of novel drug lead candidates with the ultimate goal of translating basic research results
into clinical practice. Most recently the Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research (HIRI) was
jointly founded with the Julius-Maximilians University in Würzburg.
The HZI with more than 900 employees is jointly financed by the Federal Government (90%), the State Government
of Lower Saxony (9%) and the State Government of Saarland (1%). The HZI is a member of the Helmholtz Association
of German Research Centres, Germany's largest non-university scientific organisation. Furthermore the HZI is one
of 35 partner institutions joining forces in the field of infection research within the German Centre for
Infection Research (Deutsches Zentrum für Infektionsforschung - DZIF).
The Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research invites applications for the position of independent
