Postdoc or PhD position available!

1 Postdoc and 1 PhD position in Molecular Neuroscience in Erlangen

Topic: Dynamic interaction of presynaptic cytomatrix and calcium channels.

Methods: molecular biology, biochemistry, primary cell culture, superresolution and functional imaging of neurotransmission in cultured cells.

You are highly motivated, with excellent M.Sc. or equivalent degree in neurobiology, biochemistry or related areas. Previous experience in field of cellular or molecular neuroscience is an advantage. Strong dedication to basic neuroscience, willingness to contribute to the development of your PhD project by own ideas and readiness to take over responsibilities within an interdisciplinary team are absolute must.

Please, submit your application containing letter of motivation, CV, transcript of records, summary of research experience and master project and two names of faculty members that agreed to support your application by a letter of a reference as single PDF file to: Anna.Fejtova@uk-erlangen.de (Subject: PhD position- Your name). Start date upon agreement.

We are always open to supervise MD, Master and Bachelor thesis in Molecular and Cellular Neuroscinece. The lab is interested in molecular and cellular  mechanisms that control plasticity of neurotransmitter release and presynapse-to-nucleus signalling and their role in normal brain function and in disease (Davydova et al., Neuron 2014; Ivanova et al., EMBO J 2015; Altmüller et al., PLoS Genetics 2017; Lazarevic et al., Front Mol Neurosci 2017 and Neuropharmacology 2018, Heck et al., Neuron, 2019 ). For our research, we use a broad spectrum of methods ranging from biochemical and molecular techniques, mouse genetics, behavioural analysis, -omics approaches, neurophysiology, and super-resolution and live imaging in neurons.
