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
