The Institute for Anatomy and Cell Biology, Department Molecular Embryology at the University of Freiburg is looking for a highly motivated Postdoc. The research focus of Prof. Vogel´s group lies on the role of neurodevelopmental disorders (Weise et al, Mol Neuro, 2018, Weise et al Front Cell Neurosci, 2018, Vezzali et al, Oncotarget, 2016) and epigenetic mechanisms especially histone modifications in neurodevelopment and CNS disease (Franz et al, NAR, 2018, Bovio et al, Mol Neuro, 2018, Grassi et al, Cerebral Cortex, 2017, Roidl et al, Stem Cells, 2016). The research project is focussing on the role of FOXG1 in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex. Based on multiple "omics" data sets available in the lab, the project aims to decipher novel molecular mechanisms of FOXG1 function in mice and humans. Beside selfsustained research activity, the successful candidate should be proficient to contribute to the teaching of macro- and microscopic anatomy in German language. Starting date: from now on.

You are convincing through
• a strong background in biochemistry, biology, molecular medicine, medicine or equivalent, as well as an outstanding PhD or MD,
• documented experience in techniques of cell biology, protein biochemistry and molecular biology, applied to understand the development or function of the central nervous system,
• experience with human iPSC,
• experience with bioinformatical analyses of large data sets and next-generation-sequencing,
• very good communication skills in English,
• enthusiasm for science, strong motivation and the ability to learn new techniques and to work synergistically in a team.
