PhD position Department of Neuropathology Bonn University Medical School

Three PhD position are available at the Section for Translational Epilepsy Research at the Institute of Neuropathology, University Bonn Medical School, Germany.
 
The PhD positions will be in the framework of the Sonderforschungsbereich 1089 (SFB 1089) on Synaptic Microcircuits in Health and Disease (www.sfb1089.de) and a project funded by the Else Kröner Fresenius Foundation. The research focus of the projects will be on the characterization of molecular mechanisms underlying epileptogenesis. In particular, in the three projects we are studying (1) the role of immune – neuron signaling, (2) transcriptional signaling pathways and (3) the impact of neuronal morphology and connectivity on the development of hyperexcitable networks. This research is based on a wide array of methods including ‘Omics’ assays, in vitro and animal model (viral transgenicand in utero electroporation, EEG recordings) approaches, cell biological, molecular, biochemical, histological as well as imaging techniques (e. g. van Loo et al., 2015 Johnson et al., 2015; Kulbida et al., 2015, Woitecki et al. 2016, Alvarez-Baron et al. 2013, Pitsch et al. 2012).

The ideal candidate will be an ambitious, highly motivated, team-oriented graduate student with a strong interest in neurobiology. Prior research experience with animal experimentation, microscopy, or electrophysiology techniques is advantageous. Candidates should hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in Neuroscience, Biological Science, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field. Candidates should also demonstrate aptitude in written and spoken English.

Interested candidates should send curriculum vitae, letter of motivation indicating starting date, short description of past lab experience, copies of university degree(s) with academic records, contact information and at least two reference letters (or the referee’s contact info) as a single PDF file.

Salary will be according to the German salary scale TV-L E13 (65%). The University Bonn is a provider of equal opportunity in compliance with the German disability laws. Women and in particular individuals with disability are strongly encouraged to apply. We only consider candidates with whom we have the possibility to conduct a personal interview. Questions concerning the projects can be addressed to Dr. J. Pitsch (jpitsch@uni-bonn.de) or Dr. K. van Loo (Karen.van_loo@ukbonn.de).
