Skin inflammation

项目介绍

Our research activities include basic, translational, and clinical research in the field of dermatology, including skin cancer, inflammatory skin disorders, and allergy. In part, our research is focused on pathogenesis, disease mechanisms, but also on therapy. The department is accordingly well equipped for experimentally and pre-clinical research utilising tissue cultures and rodents, and with methods of molecular biology, immunology, histology, as well as bioinformatics.

Your responsibilities

The appointed PhD student will conduct experimental research in the area of skin inflammation. We are interested in the innate immune response of keratinocytes to infection and how dysregulation of this response leads to chronic inflammation or autoinflammatory disorders of the skin. The work will be done in close collaboration with other researchers in the laboratory, the department and with collaborators. The candidate will perform experiments with cell culture and molecular biology techniques. Therefore, it would be an advantage to have hands-on experience with immunological and molecular biology methods, such as immunoblotting, qPCR, microscopy and CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing techniques.

Your profile

The candidate should hold a Master’s degree in biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology or in an equivalent field. The candidate should be ambitious, inquisitive, highly motivated, and experienced in experimental research. Ideal candidates will have strong laboratory and organisational skills. Successful candidates should have very good English language skills (written and oral).

What we offer

  • Duration of the position (3 – 4 years)
  • close supervision and support to develop necessary competencies for academic success
  • intellectual and scientific challenge and the opportunity to develop multiple competencies
  • Internal / external educational and training possibilities
  • Participation at scientific meetings and conferences
  • Salary is defined by normal UZH regulations for PhD students

Place of work

University of Zurich & University Hospital Zurich, Wagistrasse 18, 8952 Schlieren

Start of employment
