The Institute of Virology focuses on experimental approaches to combat human pathogens, including the airborne SARS coronavirus-2, which causes COVID-19, a potentially very severe infectious disease. It is largely unclear what underlying factors influence disease progression, and the events of the past 2 years have shown that we urgently and compellingly need a deeper understanding of pathogens that can trigger pandemics.
To this end, the Institute of Virology at Helmholtz Munich is engaged in basic virological research to define therapeutic targets, develop antiviral drugs, develop a better understanding of the immune response to viruses and to vaccines, as well as to the pathological effects of infection on the respiratory organs, the immunopathogenesis of viral infections, and the influence of pre-existing diseases on the clinical picture.
Our team at the Munich-Neuherberg site consists of 5 research groups with international scientists and staff and is looking for a postdoc as immediate support for the microscopic and cell biological analyses of inflammatory and cell-death related processes of intracellular infections in the BSL2 / BSL3 laboratory.
