PhD Position in Neurobiology
Wednesday, 1. February 2017
Based on our previous work (Rudolf et al. Front Physiol 4: cialis sans ordonnance 290, 2013; Khan et al. Autophagy 10: 123–36, 2014; Khan et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci 113: 746–750, 2016; Wild et al. Autophagy, in press), this DFG-funded project addresses the sympathetic co-innervation of vertebrate neuromuscular junctions. The project focuses on development, biomedical relevance, and mechanisms of this innervation and will be largely performed at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of Applied Sciences Mannheim. Parts of the study will be done at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and at Leibniz-Institute ISAS, Dortmund. Thus, willingness to travel and connect to different people is an important prerequisite. The work involves preparation of animals, biochemical, immunochemical, and proteomic analyses. Based on these data, working hypotheses will be developed and tested in further experimental assays.
