Doctoral Researcher (f/div/m) in Fungal RNA Biology


The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute


Research Areas: Microbiology, Mycology, RNA Biochemistry

This project is part of a newly established research group that will bring together the study of pathogenic fungi, RNA biology, and extracellular vesicles to better understand and treat fungal infections.
The field of study:

The successful candidate will investigate the field of fungal pathogenesis through the lens of RNA biology. The main topics of the project may include:

  • Identification of the small RNA repertoire of fungi during infection.
  • Elucidation and characterization of novel RNA regulatory pathways in filamentous fungi.
  • Development of potential RNA-based therapeutics against fungal infection.
