Newly funded research network CoViPa (Corona Virus Pathogenesis)

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 has major global impact on human society, economy and daily life. Inspite of rapid progress in this field, the molecular determinants underlying COVID-19 pathogenesis remain unclear.

To gain knowledge about the virological and immunological drivers of COVID-19 pathogenesis and the parameters of immune protection, we united experts from 7 Helmholtz Centers and 3 university partners, to create an internationally competitive and interdisciplinary network called CoViPa that pursues two major goals:

  1. Determine the virological and immunological parameters underlying COVID-19 pathogenesis to define targeted therapies and inform vaccine development;
  2. Use SARS-CoV-2 as paradigm to gather knowledge and establish durable technology platforms for pandemic preparedness.

CoViPa is coordinated by the Helmholtz Association and comprises 21 principal investigators that are leaders in field. To get started, CoViPa is looking for:

8 PhD Students (f/m/d) and

3 post doctoral researchers (f/m/d)

If you are interested to join this unique network that offers excellent infrastructures and cutting-edge methods as well as a research school with a strong focus on career development, please send your applications no later than 30th of June 2021 to
