PI: Barbara Susanne Sixt, Ph.D.
Department of Molecular Biology
The Sixt lab strives to uncover the hidden protective potential of pathogen-suppressed cellular defense pathways, to identify the molecular determinants of host defense and pathogenic countermeasures, and to find means to disturb their balance to the benefit of the host. Our main experimental model is the interaction of human cells with the obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis.
PhD student and post-doc positions available!
The Sixt lab currently accepts applications from motivated young researchers that would like to apply state-of-the-art tools in molecular genetics to debunk the power of cell-autonomous immunity. If you are interested in joining our team as a PhD student or post-doc, please send me your CV and a short letter of motivation
