PhD Position in Developmental Neurobiology
Topic: Molecular mechanisms of axon growth
The project in our department aims at a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the growth and navigation of axons during development and regeneration. In particular, we study the role of cell adhesion molecules, cytoskeletal components, and intracellular signalling molecules which mediate between them. The project is basic research but aims at contributing to the development of novel therapeutic approaches, e. g. for axon regeneration (patents). Our major model system is the retina of chick and mouse embryo and our approaches comprise a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art techniques such as elaborate cell and tissue culture systems, molecular biology/biochemistry and micro-/nano-technology, and live imaging microscopy. For details, please visit our webpage: Stellen / Open Positions and have a look at our review article http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S092547731200113X .
We offer a well equipped department (Faculty of Biosciences) which is member of the COS (Center for Organismal Studies) and IZN (Interdisciplinary Center for Neurosciences) and also of the Cell Network Excellence Cluster. The Heidelberg Campus provides not only a very stimulating scientific environment but also a wide range of excellent facilities such as the Nikon Imaging Center, electron microscopy core facility, RNAi screening facility, deep sequencing core facility etc.. In our department, we offer supportive mentoring, motivating atmosphere, and safe funding of the PhD projects for 3 years (50% TVL E13). For questions or applications, please send an email to G.E.Pollerberg@cos.uni-heidelberg.de (CV as a single pdf; please note that any documents submitted by mail cannot be returned).
