Issue: RNA inter­fer­ence based ther­apy for aden­ov­irus infec­tions in the immun­osup­pressed host. In the pro­ject dif­fer­ent molecu­lar anti­vir­als (siRNAs, sol­uble virus recept­ors and phar­ma­ceut­ic­als) shall be used alone or in com­bin­a­tions to treat aden­ov­irus infec­tions to find out whether by com­bin­a­tion ther­apies anti­viral effi­ciency can be increased. Invest­ig­a­tions will be car­ried out in vitro for which
stand­ard vir­o­lo­gical, bio­chem­ical and tech­niques of molecu­lar bio­logy will be employed. Much work will car­ried out in vivo, in which in vitro res­ults shall be veri­fied. For in vivo exper­i­ments a model of immun­osup­pressed Syr­ian ham­sters will be used. The model is estab­lished. The research asso­ci­ate shall carry out the invest­ig­a­tions, eval­u­ate the res­ults, pre­pare manuscripts and con­gress con­tri­bu­tions, giv­ing lec­tures on sci­entific meet­ings.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) bio­logy, bio­chem­istry, medi­cine, veter­in­ary medi­cine or bio­tech­no­logy. Pro­found know­ledge in bio­chem­ical and vir­o­lo­gical tech­niques and tech­niques of molecu­lar bio­logy. Long term exper­i­ences in animal exper­i­ments (inclus­ive approval to work as pro­ject leader for animal exper­i­ments), good com­mu­nic­a­tion abil­it­ies and abil­ity to work in a team, resi­li­ence, and high will­ing­ness to work, per­sonal ini­ti­at­ive, very good know­ledge of PC soft­ware (Graph­Pad, MS-Office pro­grams), good know­ledge of Eng­lish and Ger­man.
