Postdoctoral of Neurosciences

University of Heidelberg



We are interested in the molecular basis of axon growth during development and regeneration. A potential Postdoc-project could investigate the interactions of cell adhesion molecules with other types of proteins and the impact of these interactions on axon elongation and navigation. Data have already been collected for several projects, and the Postdoc could complete and publish these studies. Besides these basic research projects, also a new translational project could be started aiming at the improvement of axon regeneration. In addition, there is also room for own project ideas or follow up studies; mature Postdocs are encouraged to apply. We are looking for a self-motivated, Postdoc, able to work also rather independently, with a background in molecular and cellular biology, ideally within the area of neurosciences.

We are a small but well equipped group with access to all the excellent facilities on the campus. The position is available until April 2021; please send your applications until May 1st, 2019.

Payment will be according to German TV-L, E13 (full time; also part time possible).

Please send your CV, relevant certificates, and a short letter of motivation to G.E.Pollerberg@cos.uni-heidelberg. Preference will be given to disabled applicants with equal qualifications. For further inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact Elisabeth Pollerberg.

We ask for your understanding that received application documents will not be returned.

The University of Heidelberg aims to increase the proportion of women in areas where women are underrepresented and therefore urges qualified women to apply.
