About us:

The Virology (chair: Professor Oliver T. Keppler) of the Max von Pettenkofer Institute LMU Munich, Germany, offers a

Postdoctoral Position in Coronavirus Research (m/f/x)

for 30 months in the laboratory of Professor Keppler

The continued emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants-of-concern poses a major challenge for the control of the pandemic. We are interested in understanding the evolution and mechanisms of immune evasion of SARS-CoV-2 and the development of antiviral strategies. We have developed novel assays to study adaptive immunity against SARS-CoV-2 including neutralising antibodies in the biosafety 3 laboratory (Wratil et al., Nature Medicine 2022; Keppler-Hafkemeyer et al., Nature Cancer 2022) and demonstrated the antiviral efficacy of innovative click-chemistry modified, stablized siRNAs (Traube et al., Angewandte Chemie 2022).

We are looking for you:
