Research Assistant - 0.6667 working time - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen - 1st qualification period (PhD candidate)

Working field:

The aim of the qualification (PhD) is to create a complex model of gastrointestinal organoids in a microfluidic system (organ-on-a-chip). The group is interested in better understanding of the human gastrointestinal tract, its barrier function and interaction with pathogens. Our group uses human stem cell-derived organoids as a model for the human gastrointestinal tract, and we combine this technology with system-wide approaches such as RNA-seq and targeted approaches such as CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knockout. The gastrointestinal organoid will be combined with another organoid (e.g. bone marrow) on a microfluidic system (chip) and then applied either for basic research (innate immunity) or as an alternative to animal models in drug testing (tumor research). Contribution to teaching is required.


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in life sciences, e.g. biomedicine, biochemistry, medical biotechnology, biology.
  • Ability to work in a team, communication skills and high motivation to contribute own ideas is expected.
  • Very good German and English language skills are desired.
  • Previous experience in cell culture and bioinformatics applications is desired.
  • Preference will be given to applicants with experience in the other methods mentioned in the job description.
  • Experience in teaching will be considered positively.
