Place

Description

We are looking for a highly motivated new PhD student with prior experience in experimental biomedical sciences or related fields and an outstanding interest for fundamental questions regarding the interaction between the host nervous system, its internal organs and the microbiome.
You will work in the lab of Ilona Grunwald Kadow whose research aim is to unravel the neuronal and genetic underpinnings of state-dependent sensory perception and behavior (see Lewis et al., Current Biology 2015; Hussain et al., PLoS Biology 2016; Hussain et al., eLife 2018; Grunwald Kadow, Current Opinion Neurobiology 2018).
Good command of English is a must. Prior experience with mouse or fly genetics, behavioral analysis, statistical analysis, or molecular biology is a plus.
The aim of the project is to take advantage of Drosophila melanogaster as a genetic model to discover novel mechanisms underpinning host interactions with established mammalian pathobionts, the gut, and the nervous system.
