Our group is focused on the questions how cell adhesion molecules at the cell surface and in the extracellular matrix shape the nervous system in ontogenesis and synaptic activity/plasticity and how their expression changes in regeneration of the adult mammalian peripheral and central nervous systems after acute or in chronic injuries. We combine biochemical methods, cell culture approaches and immunocytochemistry with histology, and immunohistochemistry using mouse lines as well as mouse models for human diseases.
We are looking for a highly motivated young researcher at the junior or senior level with interest in neurobiology, molecular biology, cell biology, morphology and/or biochemistry.
Minimum Education and Experience:
M.D. and/or Ph.D. in a related field is required. Experience in neurobiology, molecular biology, cell biology, morphology and/or biochemistry.
