At TU Dresden, the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden - Cluster of Excellence (CRTD)Junior Research Group “Functional Synthetic Human Retinal Circuits” is looking for, subject to granted funds, a
Research fellow
(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
with molecular neuroscience background skilled in molecular biology, imaging and stem cell cultures. The ERC-funded position ideally starts as soon as possible, latest at 1 April 2016, and is a 3 years appointment with the option to be extended. The period of employment is governed by § 2 Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). Balancing family and career is an important issue. The post is basically suitable for candidates seeking part-time employment. The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification (e.g. habilitation thesis).
Tasks: Ideally, the successful candidate will identify transcription factors (TF) that induce neurogenesis by unbiased large-scale TF libraries in human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells as well as participate in our interdisciplinary approach covering stem cell research, directed neuronal differentiation and neuronal disease modeling.
Requirements: A suitable candidate must hold a university degree and a PhD degree in neuroscience, molecular biology, stem cell biology or a similar field with formal training in molecular cloning, genomic engineering, stem cell cultures, high-throughput screening and imaging. The interpretation of large-scale multi-level data is crucial. The candidate should have a good overview of the corresponding literature and be interested in an interdisciplinary and interactive work environment in the area of stem cell research, directed neuronal differentiation and gene regulatory network analysis. Communication in English is essential since we offer an international working atmosphere at the CRTD and are participating in international projects. Experience with automatized image analysis is desirable.
