Beschreibung: We are seeking a highly motivated Master student with a Bachelor’s or equivalent degree in Biochemistry/ Microbiology/ Biotechnology/ Molecular Biology, who are interested in an internship position for the duration of 3-9 months. We provide the potential candidate with the opportunity to complete her/his master's or master's thesis in our lab (at least 6 months duration). The internship will be paid and the student can pick the starting date.

The Jakob lab is located at the University of Michigan, one of the top five public schools in the country, which provides an excellent research environment. The Jakob lab is part of the Department of Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology, which consists of fifty-two faculty and over seventy Ph.D., students whose charge is to increase knowledge of living organisms. Our lab studies redox regulation and the role of oxidative stress in host defense and aging. Cellular responses to reactive oxygen species such as hypochlorous acid (HOCl, the active component of household bleach) are well known as critical factors in virulence of invading pathogens. Our research goal is to explore the role that HOCl stress response plays in medically important bacteria, particularly focusing on roles in colonization, inflammation, and pathogenesis. It is widely accepted that bacteria are critical determinants of human health, which becomes especially important in times of increasing resistance of pathogens to antibiotics. Ultimately, our research will lead to new therapeutic strategies that could either sensitize pathogenic bacteria to killing by the immune system or make health-promoting bacteria more robust.
