We are looking for a doctoral student with experience in cellular and molecular neurobiology to join our DFG-funded project on Arpp21 and the miRNA miR-128. We recently described regulatory interactions between these two molecules (Rehfeld et al., Nature Communications 2018; Franzoni et al., eLife 2017) that are important for the functional maturation of cortical neurons.
Mutations in Arpp21 have recently been identified as a significant contributor to ALS. The successful candidate will use advanced molecular assays, imaging and mouse mutants to further characterize the important functions of this novel RNA-binding protein in development and disease. We are looking for someone well grounded in cortical development, neuronal morphology and imaging; experience in RNA biology and experimental techniques is advantageous but not prerequisite.
The neuroscience community at the Charité provides access to cutting edge imaging facilities, animal husbandry (including in utero electroporation), electrophysiology, sequencing and bioinformatics. Our Institute provides a collaborative environment focused on all aspects of the cortex using the mouse and neuronal stem cells as model systems.
Expressions of interest including academic records sufficient to evaluate the applicant can be sent by email.
