Your university hospital in the heart of Munich

We are the Klinikum rechts der Isar (MRI), Hospital of Munich, Tech­nical University (TUM) and a reliable employer of around 6,000 people. Being a university hos­pital, we not only look after our patients but, based on our motto “Knowledge Creates Cures” (Wissen schafft Heilung), we are also engaged in research and teaching, enjoying an excellent national as well as inter­national reputation. 160 different pro­fessional groups work hand in hand to ensure that our patients receive the best possible treat­ment.

The research group of Prof. Dr. Bassermann is part of the Depart­ment of Internal Medicine III (Hematology and Oncology) and is located at TranslaTUM – Central Institute for Translational Cancer Research. It is well embedded in the Munich bio­medical research community and research centers such as the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK), Bayerisches Zentrum für Krebs­forschung (BZKF), and the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center 1335 “Aberrant Immune Sig­nals in Cancer”, and Euro­pean Research Council (ERC).

The group investigates how post­translational mechanisms, particularly the ubiquitin system, regu­lates core aspects of cancer-related cellular pro­cesses such as the cell cycle, immune and DNA damage responses, meta­bolism, and programmed cell death. Special interest is how aberrant functions of this system contri­bute to the pathogenesis and maintenance of cancer and how these can serve as thera­peutic targets and biomarkers.

To strengthen our team, we are looking for a highly self-motivated
