PhD student for anatomical and functional investigations of the CNS of zebrafish models for attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Over the last couple of decades the genetic basis for psychiatric diseases including attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been partly uncovered, identifying several candidate genes associated with the disease. However, for the vast majority of the genetic variations it still remains enigmatic how and to which extent they contribute to the disease. In the current project, we will investigate the mechanistic role of a handful of top candidate genes correlating with ADHD endophenotypes.
 
We will apply gene loss-of-function approaches combined with behavioral phenotyping in zebrafish. Furthermore, any behavioral phenotypes will be correlated to biochemical and structural changes of the brain of juvenile and adult fish using HPLC and advanced light microscopy.
 
Applicants should have received a Master degree (or equivalent) in life sciences within the last six months. Previous training in neurobiology and/or experience with the zebrafish model is advantageous. To apply, please send a detailed CV, letter of motivation, copies of Bachelor/Masters certificate, a transcript of records as well as name and contact details of two reference persons as a single pdf-file to drepper_c@ukw.de or christina.lillesaar@biozentrum.uni-wuerzburg.de
