The Faculty of Medicine OWL has the following job opening:

Research Position for the international project „TumorOUT“

ID: Wiss23311
  • starting: as soon as possible
  • fulltime
  • salary according to Remuneration level 13 TV-L
  • fixed-term
In the joint project TumorOUT, an innovative mRNA vaccine against lung cancer is being developed. Together with research partners from Spain, France, Israel and Germany, immunotherapeutic tools based on targeted nanoparticles are being designed. These will be loaded with mRNA + siRNA constructs specifically designed for metabolic modulation of antigen-presenting cells (APC) in non-small cell lung carcinomas. By reconstructing conditions in the tumor microenvironment, effective personalized therapy will be realized. At the Bielefeld site, spatial distributions of metabolites within the tumor microenvironment (TMU) will be investigated using imaging techniques (MALDI-MSI, histology, microscopy, and others). The goal of the project is to elucidate the effects of nanoimmunotherapy on metabolic interactions within the tumor microenvironment and to document the success of the therapy.

Your Tasks
  • research on imaging of metabolic processes in tumor tissues and cell cultures (70 %)
  • communication and organization of a workshop in Bielefeld, and practical exchange with partners in the international EU project (10 %)
  • publication and presentation of research results (20 %)

Employment is conducive to scientific qualification.

We offer
  • salary according to Remuneration level 13 TV-L
  • fixed-term Until 31.03.2026 with the possibility of extension up to 3 years contract duration in case of project extension (§ 2 (1) sentence 2 of the WissZeitVG; in accordance with the provisions of the WissZeitVG and the Agreement on Satisfactory Conditions of Employment, the length of contract may differ in individual cases)
