Technische Universität Dresden - Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB), Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), Chair of Neural Development and Regeneration
The TU Dresden is one of eleven German universities that were identified as an “excellence university”. TUD has about 36.500 students and almost 5319 employees, 507 professors among them, and, thus, is the largest university in Saxony, today.
Having been committed to sciences and the engineering before the reunification of Germany, TU Dresden now is a multi-discipline university, also offering humanities and social sciences as well as medicine.
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Start date is negotiable, but can be as soon as possible. The positions are funded by the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation and will initially be limited for 5 years with the option for extension. The period of employment is governed by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG).
elucidate mechanisms of spinal cord repair (Cavone et al, Dev Cell, 2021; Tsarouchas et al., Nature Commun 2018; Wehner et al., Nature Commun 2017) and neurodegenerative diseases (Oprişoreanu et al., Cell Reports 2019) by making full use of the experimental advantages of the zebrafish model to explore regenerative neurogenesis, the dynamics of inflammation after injury and pursue drug discovery in our spinal cord injury and motor neurone disease models.
university and PhD degree in biology or related fields with expertise in at least one of the following areas:
generation of genetic animal models;
in-vivo imaging and time-lapse microscopy;
genomics and bioinformatics;
neuroanatomy and histology.
The international Center operates in English and therefore good knowledge of both spoken and written English is a requirement. The candidate is highly motivated. Familiarity with the experimental model, the zebrafish, is an advantage.
What we offer:
The CRTD consists of more than 80 international research groups working in the field of haematology, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases and bone regeneration. The CRTD explores the capacity for regeneration of the human body and aims to develop novel regenerative therapies, e.g. with hematological stem cells. In order to be able to develop such therapies, the research institute explores mechanisms of stem cell physiology in vitro as well as in vivo using animal models such as mouse, axolotl and zebrafish.
