The DZNE in Bonn offers a position as
Postdoctoral researcher (f/m) – Code 1474/2017/6
within the group of Dr. Ehninger at the DZNE site Bonn.
Our group is interested in molecular and cellular mechanisms that contribute to neuropsychiatric and aging-associated disorders. To this end, we employ mouse models and multidisciplinary experimental approaches that combine behavioral neuroscience tools with genomics and epigenomics, biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, as well as neurophysiology. The group is also interested in translating findings from preclinical models to human populations.
We offer committed mentorship, exciting research projects, an excellent scientific environment in a major center for translational neuroscience research, state-of-the-art facilities and good funding.
