PhD position in Tübingen

“Tracking of Signaling Molecules and Cells in Mice“

We have an opening for a PhD student. Our lab uses state-of-the-art transgenic mouse and imaging technology to "watch" biochemical processes and cell behavior in real time in living tissues and mice. We are particularly interested in the role of the signaling molecule cGMP in cell growth and survival. The projects involve analyses at the whole organism, cellular and molecular level.

You should be interested to work at the interface of biochemistry and biomedicine, with a focus on cell signaling under native conditions. Specifically, you will use Cre/lox-assisted genetic approaches combined with live cell imaging to further dissect the mechanisms that regulate cell plasticity during vascular and neuronal remodeling. Thus, the ideal candidate would have experience in working with transgenic mice and/or optical imaging, preferentially intravital microscopy of mice. You will be working in the framework of the DFG research unit FOR 2060 ( see also www.cyclic-gmp.de ).
