Master thesis in virology
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München is recognized as one of Europe's premier academic and research institutions. The Gene Center is a central scientific institution of the LMU located in the heart of its Life Science Campus in Großhadern/Martinsried.
The research group of PD Dr. Barbara Adler at the Gene Center, LMU Munich, Germany, is looking for a
Master student (f/m/d) to work on a project studying cellular factors which facilitate human cytomegalovirus infection of host cells.
More than 80 % of all humans worldwide are infected with human cytomegalovirus. This has a great impact on advances in medicine like modern tumor therapies or transplantation of organs, as many tumor and transplant patients die from cytomegalovirus infections during therapy. In addition, in about 1 % of all pregnancies worldwide and also in Germany, cytomegalovirus-infected mothers transfer the virus to their unborn children leading to severe disabilities or the death of the newborns.
We are doing basic research on human and murine cytomegalovirus with the aim to contribute to a better prevention of cytomegalovirus disease. For our research, we are looking for a talented and motivated student (m/f/d) to work on a project studying cellular factors which facilitate human cytomegalovirus infection of host cells.
We are a small research group embedded in a virological environment (Max von Pettenkofer-Institute) and a biochemical environment (Gene Center). We offer a highly individual supervision and additionally an access to a broad research environment in virology.
Interested? Please send a cover letter and your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications will be considered at any time.
