The Unit conducts cutting-edge research on host-pathogen interaction at the lab/field interface. A particular focus is on the population genomics of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) and its interaction with human genetic diversity as well as on the evolution of antibiotic resistance. Our Unit generates large amounts of population- and functional genomic data (e.g. RNAseq, large-scale proteomics and metabolomics). The candidate is expected to work on his/her own specific project as well as in close collaboration with other members of the Unit.
