The DFG Clinical Research Unit ‘Male Germ Cells: from Genes to Function’ (CRU326) investigates in translational projects human male germ cell function in health and disease at the genetic, epigenetic, and molecular level.

The Clinical Research Unit consists of clinicians and basic researchers from the local Centre of Reproductive Medicine and Andrology, Department of General Pediatrics, Institutes of Human Genetics, Cell Biology, and Medical Informatics, and the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Biomedicine.

The project entitled ‘Molecular Signatures of Sertoli cells’ focuses on the study of human testicular Sertoli cells (SC) and their essential role for spermatogenesis.  Addressing the hypothesis that altered molecular signatures of SCs can be causative for male infertility, we will study this cell type at the molecular, morphological and proteomic level. The project will be conducted in a strong translational setting, in which clinicians, scientists and bioinformaticians are working together closely and involves RNA sequencing techniques and novel bioinformatic morphological tools.

Required qualifications:

  • PhD in Biology or related subject (required)
  • Broad experience in transcriptomics, cell culture, histological evaluation including immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence (desired)
  • Experience in bioinformatic analyses (desired)
  • Fluency and excellent communication skills in English (and German) (required)
  • Strong commitment to research and development in a translational setting (required)

We offer:

  • The setting of the multifaceted Clinical Research Unit CRU326
  • An international, multidisciplinary, and creative working environment
  • Innovative technologies
  • Excellent possibilities for career development and networking
  • A broad range of gender equality measures
  • An educational programme
  • The opportunity to apply for pilot project funding
