Institute: The Department of Neurophysiology, Institute of Physiology of the Eberhard Karls, University of Tuebingen
Start date: 1st October 2020
The Department of Neurophysiology at the University of Tuebingen has a vacancy for a Postdoc position for two years (with the possibility of an extension), TVL-L 13, 100 %, starting from 01.10.2020.
A PhD in Biology/Medicine or a related discipline as well as deep knowledge of Molecular Biology (ELISA, RNA-Seq, design/production of viruses, etc.) and/or (in vivo) calcium imaging including the corresponding analysis methods (Matlab) is required.
The candidate is expected to work independently within the framework of institute’s major research fields, including:
- Analysis of the interaction between the nervous and the immune systems of the brain
- Characterization of microglial turnover, priming and senescence
- In vivo analysis of signal processing in the olfactory bulb
- Mechanisms of integration of adult stem cells in preexisting neural networks
- Alzheimer’s disease
Furthermore, the candidate is invited to contribute to the teaching in physiology, as well as to courses of the “Graduate School of Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience” and/or of the PhD program “Experimental Medicine”. We offer a carrier development and specialization in physiology as well as habilitation.
