Two Group Leaders in Molecular and Translational Neuroscience

Two group leader positions in Molecular and Translational Neuroscience are available at the Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience - DANDRITE (dandrite.au.dk) of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.  

DANDRITE is hosted by Aarhus University, an international, top-ranking university, with financial support from the Lundbeck Foundation. The research scope is on integrative/systems neuroscience and molecular mechanisms of intra- and intercellular networks defining general cell biology, neuronal circuits, and complex signal processing in brain, how these mechanisms are linked to behavior, and how they are altered and can be targeted in brain disorders. Translational studies have a particular focus on neurodegenerative, psychiatric, neurological and sensory disorders.  

The group leader positions
We seek two group leaders in neuroscience to establish independent research programs that ideally both exploit and complement the expertise and research programs of current groups. Research programs can for example investigate protein-protein interaction networks in cell biology underlying intra- or intercellular signaling and function in the normal and diseased brain using advanced tools of e.g., imaging, chemical biology, single cell technologies, genetics, proteomics and bioinformatics. Group leaders are expected to introduce novel topics and tools, strengthen synergies of on-going DANDRITE research, and build a program at international level that can support also collaborations of interdisciplinary and translational neuroscience at NeuroCampus Aarhus and within Danish neuroscience.

Please be aware that the application deadline is 30 April 2021 at 23:59 CEST.
