Our mission as research center: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

The established CPC Research School "Lung Biology and Disease" at the Comprehensive Pneumology Center/Institute for Lung Biology, Helmholtz Munich, is an international and interdisciplinary training program for postgraduate students in medicine and science. Building up on this expertise, we now aim to expand our MD/Ph.D. Training Program to create a unique structured translational training and education platform not only for respiratory medicine and science, but also in other areas in the context of the Helmholtz Munich Department "Environmental Health".

For this "International Environmental Health Research School" located in Großhadern and Neuherberg we are looking for a coordinator (f/m/x) who will be supporting the school’s spokesperson and the institute management in building up this new structure and supporting early-career scientists in their doctoral thesis work.
