Postdoc Position at the University of Tuebingen

The HoloStim-3D seamlessly integrates with the HyperScope, an award-winning multiphoton imaging system, to create an industry-leading spatial light modulator (SLM) system for all-optical interrogation of neural networks with previously unachievable performance.

Institute: The Department of Neurophysiology, Institute of Physiology of the Eberhard Karls, University of Tuebingen

Start date: 1st October 2020

The Position

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.

The Candidate

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.
