One postdoctoral position (E13 100%) is available in the Research group Molecular Psychiatry at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University Hospital in Erlangen.

The research of the group focuses on neuronal synapse. We want to understand how synapses work, how they change during learning and what goes wrong with synaptic function in brain disease.

The new projects will build on our recently published work (Ivanova et al., 2015 and 2020, Montenegro-Venegas et al., 2021 and 2022) and focus on the functional regulation of neurotransmitter release by crosstalk between metabolic status and synaptic proteostasis.

We offer an exciting research project, stimulating international work environment and friendly atmosphere in well-funded and equipped lab imbedded within vibrant multi-disciplinary academic location in Erlangen. The successful candidate will be self-motivated, ambitious and enthusiastic young neuroscientists or biologists with solid background in cellular or molecular neuroscience.

An expertise in electrophysiology or live cell imaging is absolutely required, a development of an independent research as well as promotion of a further academic qualification (“Habilitation”) will be highly encouraged. FELASA certification or an equivalent experience is mandatory.
