Job Opportunity: Research Associate, Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), Dresden, Germany

Posted by on Thursday, October 26, 2023 in Job Opportunities .

Are you passionate about fascinating important scientific questions? Do you want to understand how self-renewing macrophages fight cancer and protect against aging? Or what defines stemness in macrophages on the molecular level?
Please apply to the lab of Alexander von Humboldt Professor Dr. Michael Sieweke, chair of stem cell research and cellular therapies at the CRTD, for a position as a Research Associate/ Postdoc.

The Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) is a unique research center at the TU Dresden with a focus on regeneration and stem cell research from fundamental research to clinical applications.
The Sieweke lab studies how immune cells, especially macrophages,
influence regeneration, aging, and cancer. We investigate how gene regulatory mechanisms and long-term epigenetic changes control selfrenewal, activation, cell aging, and “trained immunity” in mouse and human cells (e.g., PMID: 35210623, PMID: 32169166, PMID: 26797145)
available immediately and with a long-term perspective.
Possible projects include questions of the role of self-renewing macrophages in tumor biology, the relation of self-renewal and alternative M2 like macrophage polarization, Molecular differences of proliferation in tumorigenic transformation and Self-renewal, Identification of new stemness mechanism in macrophages Aging and epigenetic memory in macrophages
