Our mission as research center: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.
The primary objective of the Institute of Diabetes and Regeneration Research (IDR) at the Helmholtz Diabetes Center, Helmholtz Munich, is to develop regenerative therapeutic approaches to treat diabetes mellitus – complementary and alternative to the classical immunological and metabolic therapy strategies.
We recently won an ERC Advanced Grant with the project "BetaRegeneration". The successful candidate will work on deciphering cellular and molecular mechanisms of beta cell protection and regeneration. Based on the previous identification and validation of known and novel therapeutic targets and combinatorial pharmacology, you will explore new avenues of targeted and combinatorial beta cell protection and regeneration.
To complete our scientific research team we are looking for a
In vitro studies: Biochemical, immunohistological, immunofluorescence and molecular biology analyses or
In vivo physiological studies in diabetes models or
Preparation and implementation of preclinical experimental studies to evaluate and validate drug target candidates
Creation of standard operating procedures (SOPs)
PhD in biology, or one of the following subjects: biochemistry or immunology
High interest in translational and clinical research
Strong background in one of the following subjects: biochemistry, cellular, molecular biology, islet biology or cellular trafficking
Work experience with mice in vivo pharmacology, cell culture and/or primary cells is a plus
Ability of working independently, with high motivation, flexibility and innovative and creative thinking, as well as team spirit and good communication skills
