Research Scientist/Postdoc in Cellular Neurosciences

Position: Post-doctoral Position

Deadline: 30 June 2024

Employment Start Date: 1 August 2024

Contract Length: 3 years, extension possible

City: Münster

Country: Germany

Institution: University of Münster

Department: Institute of Anatomy and Molecular Neurobiology


The Institute of Anatomy and Molecular Neurobiology at the University of Münster offers a fixed-term position in cellular neurosciences at the earliest opportunity, initially limited to 3 years, with the possibility of extension.

Full-time with 38,5 hours
Salary level according to TV-L E13

Our research focuses on molecular mechanisms of synapse formation and neurotransmission. We seek an interested and highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to investigate the role of the synaptic organizer molecules neurexins and their defects in mutant mouse models of neurodevelopmental disorders. Current projects analyze the crosstalk of neurexins with synaptic Ca2+ channels in vitro and in vivo.

Suitable candidates will hold above-average university and PhD degrees in neuroscience or related subjects and have already shown a motivation for basic science as evidenced by a strong publication record. We expect extensive prior experience with electrophysiological and microscopic techniques to analyze synaptic function in brain slices or cultured neurons. Excellent English skills (written and oral) and the ability to cooperate and work in a team are an asset. Research associates contribute to the teaching obligations of the Institute according to qualifications and experience.

The Institute offers the possibility of obtaining your postdoctoral lecture qualification.
