About the employer



The TRR 359 Transregional Collaborative Research Center “Perinatal Development of Immune Cell Topology (PILOT)” is a consortium which brings together scientists from several research institutions across Germany to research the development of the immune system around birth. 

Within PILOT, an Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) “CoPILOT” is a structured doctoral training program in perinatal immunology. Doctoral researchers in the natural sciences and medical doctoral (MD) candidates will be integrated into the PILOT consortium and will conduct research and receive training addressing unique theoretical and methodological aspects of perinatal immune cell development. CoPILOT will provide optimal support to doctoral candidates to pursue advanced training in a cutting-edge scientific environment, forming a new generation of scientific leaders in the area of perinatal immunology. Simultaneously, CoPILOT members will embody the bottom-up scientific network, interconnecting the geographically distributed PILOT groups.

The CoPILOT doctoral training program covers: 

  • Unique theoretical and methodological aspects of perinatal immune cell development including complex genetic mouse models and -omics approaches
  • Bio-imaging applications under in vivo and in vitro conditions
  • Basic principle seminars
  • Advanced method courses
  • Lab rotations to PILOT partner groups
  • CoPILOT lecture series (hybrid format), annual retreats and summer schools
  • Transferable skills courses

Regular lectures, seminars and workshops are offered in a hybrid format; retreats, summer schools and lab rotations are organized on-site.

All CoPILOT doctoral researchers have a Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC) to monitor their individual progress, supervise their scientific work, provide guidance on career planning and support a scientific network.

Since PILOT brings together scientists from several institutions across Germany, doctoral researchers will work on their research project at a specific location. Please read the subproject descriptions for more information about the location of each subproject. Several PILOT subprojects span two sites and hence doctoral candidates in one subproject may work at different sites.
