The Friedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI) is one of the world's leading research institutes in the field of animal diseases, animal welfare, animal husbandry, animal nutrition and farm animal genetics. It is part of the portfolio of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture and informs and advises the Federal Government in these areas.

The Institute of Immunology, at the headquarters in Greifswald – Insel Riems is looking for a Scientific Employee to start a soon as possible on a full-time basis. The position is limited to two years as part of a probationary leadership. After a successful evaluation, he/she will be offered a permanent position.


The successful candidate will study the immunology of B cells during infection and will build up an independent research group. Investigations should characterize B cell populations and antibody repertoires in livestock and/or wildlife by combining experimental tools and bioinformatics. Analysis of antigen specificities, BCR repertoires and antibody features should promote design of novel interventions against notifiable animal diseases and/or zoonoses. Analysis of immune responses should be explored in high containment laboratories (safety level 2 and 3).

  • Investigations on B cell responses during bacterial and/or viral infection
  • Combine experimental tools and bioinformatics to functionally analyze BCR/antibody repertoires
  • Application of state-of-the-art and high-throughput technologies to define BCR and antibody specificities (e.g. single cell/AIR sequencing, cloning, binding assays, CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing)
  • Development of an advanced serology pipeline for livestock


  • University degree in biosciences
  • PhD in immunology, infection biology or related biosciences
  • Proven expertise in B cell immunology and bioinformatics
