Master thesis position

A Master Thesis position in Cell Biology and Immunology is available at the Medical University of Vienna, Institute of Medical Genetics in the group of Thomas Weichhart.


The main focus of our group is to study molecular mechanisms of macrophage function and its regulation by metabolic cues in granulomatous diseases such as tuberculosis or sarcoidosis. The diploma project aims to elucidate how the metabolic pathways regulate immune responses during macrophage granuloma formation. These processes are studied in vitro and in vivo. The experimental focus will be cell culture, flow cytometry, immunofluorescence, and well as RT-PCR.


Duration: 1 year, start as early as possible We are looking for a highly motivated and self-driven student, who has a strong interest in immunology and cell biology.  Interested candidates should send an application letter and CV.  to Thomas Weichhart (
