We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic master thesis student who is interested to investigate the role of nuclear receptor corepressor 1 (Ncor1) in the regulation of T cell-mediated immunity. The master thesis project is embedded in a stimulating international interdisciplinary research environ-ment. The experimental strategies to address our research interests include multi-color flow-cytometry, a variety of immunological tools, biochemical and molecular approaches, retroviral-mediated gene transduction into hematopoietic stem cells, next generation sequencing, mass spec-trometry and mouse molecular genetics tools.
