OUR AIMS: Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are key epigenetic and genetic regulators during development and cell differentiation. HDACs control the acetylation status of histones and non-histone proteins, thus modulating chromatin function and the activity of non-histone protein targets, respectively. The overall aim of this 8-year special  research  program  and  consortium  is  to  provide  a  mechanistic  molecular  rationale for the development and application of isoform-selective HDAC inhibitors for the treatment of T cell-mediated diseases, and to test essential regulatory roles of reversible lysine acetylation beyond histone modifications and epigenetic gene regulation in T helper cells.

OUR OFFER: Being part of a newly established collaborative translational immunology research program embedded in a stimulating international interdisciplinary research environment (based in Vienna and Salz-burg, Austria) with access to state-of-the-art technology.

APPLICATION: Candidates have to demonstrate a strong motivation to engage in the project and network. Previous research experience in either immunology, molecular/cell biology, epigenetics, systems biology or bioinformatics is desired (but not essential). Electronic applications must include the following documents in a single PDF file:
1. Academic curriculum vitae of no more than 2 -3 pages
2. List of peer-reviewed publications
3. Motivation letter explaining why you wish to start / continue a career in the field (1 page), and which SFB group(s) you would like to join

Applications (subject heading “Application for HIT-SFB Position”) should be e-mailed by February 25 2019
to  hit@meduniwien.ac.at.  Two  reference  letters  must  be  e-mailed  by  mentors  of  applicants  before  the deadline  directly  to  hit@meduniwien.ac.at.  Short-listed  candidates  will  be  invited  for  Skype  interviews and/or  personal  interviews  in  March  2019.  Positions  are  open  from  April  2019  onward;  the  actual  start dates are flexible.
