Postdoc position using protein engineering to probe molecular mechanisms of memory 

The position is funded by a grant from The Lundbeck Foundation, and is initially for two years with the possibility of extension. The starting date is 1st of March 2020 or soon thereafter. The project will use proteins engineering to probe the molecular mechanisms of memory. Memory and learning requires synapses to change strength in response to neuronal communication, a phenomenon known as synaptic plasticity. Synaptic plasticity requires that stimulated synapses recruit a host of new proteins. This project aims to understand the mechanisms by which synaptic stimulation leads to protein recruitment through molecular design principles.

Application deadline is 2 February 2020

Jobs from our collaborators

PhD Student at Faculty of Science Radboud University and Donders Institute, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

Within the Department of Molecular Neurobiology, the Storkebaum lab combines Drosophila and mouse genetics to unravel molecular mechanisms underlying motor neurodegenerative and neuromuscular disorders, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Charcot-Marie- Tooth (CMT) peripheral neuropathy. Our team currently consists of four PhD students, two postdocs, two technical assistants, and several Master’s students. We attracted substantial external funding, including an ERC consolidator grant, two JPND grants, and a grant from the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Application deadline is 29 February 2020
