Postdoctoral Position in Medicine

The research focus of Prof. Vogel´s group lies on transcriptional control during brain development with a focus on transcription factor activity and epigenetic mechanisms especially histone modifications. The group is renowned for studying stem cell and neuronal specification during development and in CNS disease (Akol et al, PNAS, 2023; Appiah et al, Embo Rep, 2023; Ferrari et al, Nat Comm, 2020; Franz et al, NAR, 2019). We are using single-cell sequencing approaches to study transcriptional regulation through histone modifications and transcription factors with regard to cerebral cortex and hippocampus development in mouse and human organoid model systems. 

We offer you:

  • to work on high topical research projects with state-of-the art technology in a collaborative setting
  • an international work atmosphere
  • a scheme towards academic qualification

Position requirements:

  • Research in one of the group's projects
  • Participation of teaching macro - and microscopic anatomy in German language

You are convincing through:

  • a strong background in biochemistry, biology, molecular medicine, medicine or equivalent
  • experience with bioinformatical analyses of large data sets and next-generation-sequencing ideally on single cell level, and/or
  • documented experience in techniques of cell biology, protein biochemistry and molecular biology, applied to understand the development or function of the central nervous system
  • experience in live cell microscopy, or electroporation techniques, which are of interest for the group
  • very good communication skills in English
  • enthusiasm for science and the ability to learn new techniques and to work synergistically in a team
  • an outstanding PhD or MD and passion, curiosity and high motivation for unsolved research questions in the field of neurodevelopmental epigenetics
Further information: Starting date: 01.07.24. Employment will be temporary for initially 2 years.
