PhD Position in Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience, IZN, University of Heidelberg

The Interdisciplinary Center for Neurosciences (IZN) – Department of Neurobiology, at theUniversity of Heidelberg offers a Phd position within the group of Prof. Dr. Daniela Mauceristarting in summer 2016. Our newly established group investigates the molecular,transcriptional and cellular mechanisms governing neuronal morphology.The PhD project will investigate epigenetic-regulated transcription and neuronal architectureremodeling in pathological pain states. The project includes in vivo experiments in whichneurons of the spinal cord dorsal horn of adult mice are being manipulated using genetic toolsand analyzed functionally and morphologically. Additional experiments will be done withdissociated cultured mouse spinal cord neurons. The project relies on an integrative approachthat combines molecular, genetic, and biochemical methods with in vitro and in vivo imagingtechniques and behavioral assays in mice.The candidate should be highly motivated, with a strong attitude towards independent workand…
