PhD position in Duesseldorf, Germany (Department of Neurology)

This job ad is out of date. Find related Jobs here.

The Department of Neurology (Carsten Berndt/Orhan Aktas), Heinrich-Heine University Duesseldorf, Germany, offers a PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) position. The position is funded by the research commission of the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich-Heine University (1st and 2nd year) and another source (3rd year). The project focus on the formation of the glial scar, a tissue surrounding inflamed areas in the nervous system. Early form of the glial scar is beneficial in terms of protecting healthy tissue and promoting regeneration. However, late/chronic stage of the glial scar is a strong inhibitor of regeneration. We aim in the identification of specific redox regulated processes discriminating between these two stages, offering new clinical applications treating neuroinflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis. The project is embedded in a network of national and international cooperations. The PhD will be trained in a variety of methods including biochemistry, cell biology, and animal (mouse, zebrafish) models.
We are loocking for highly motivated candidates with documented experience in scientific work  interested in this new research field and in the implementation of new techniques. Prerequisite is a diploma/Master in natural science.
Please send your application including CV, certificates, summary of former research activities and naming of two references via email to carsten.berndt@hhu.de (deadline: 8th of May). Please refer to the reference number berndt_jobvector3.
