Content

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow who is interested to investigate transcriptional control mechanisms regulating murine and human Th cell differentiation, in particular assessing the role of the BTB-ZF transcription factor MAZR and its isoforms. Moreover, we will explore MAZR function during murine embryonic development. 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 spectrometry and mouse molecular genetics tools.
