The Institute of Applied Physiology, Medicel Faculty at Ulm University, Germany is looking for a

Group leader (advanced Postdoc level) in Neuroscience, and Lab-head immunohistochemistry (wiss. Mitarbeiter), f/m/d

We offer an interdisciplinary research team with international collaborations, integrated in an exciting scientific environment. We focus on analyzing individual neurons and neuronal networks, displaying differential vulnerability in aging and disease. We focus on neurodegenerative diseases & Schizophrenia, the dopamine system, and on ion channels & receptors. Methodologically, we combine state-of-the-art functional analysis (e.g. optogenetics, in vivo / in vitro electrophysiology, Ca2+ imaging, Seahorse, behavioural analysis), with high-end cell-specific molecular and immunohistochemistry techniques (e.g. tracing, confocal, STED, Multiphoton-Microscopy, RNAScope, CRISPR/Cas9, and single-cell transcriptomics).

The successful applicant has the opportunity to apply for own grants, and to build up his/her own independent line of research, and is expected to lead the Immunohistochemistry laboratory. The possibility for a Habilitation (qualification for a professorship) is given. The position is offered initially for three years. Longer funding is possible and desired. Salary, benefits etc. are according to the German TV-L system.

Applicants are expected to be enthusiastic about science, with excellent degrees in neuro-, medical- or life-sciences. Team spirit, capability for independent, self-motivated work, and very good English-skills are required. Technical expertise in immunohistochemistry, protein biochemistry and microscopy/imaging, or electrophysiology, as well as experience in student-supervision are highly desired. As our medical school teaching takes place in German language only, the ability to teach in German language is of great advantage.
Ulm University was ranked first among the German universities younger than 50 years, and offers a broad range of research programs and core facilities (e.g. the Center for Translational Imaging, MoMAN; www.uni-ulm.de/en/einrichtungen/moman/).
