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.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate

(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).

Work­ing field:

  • 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;
  • in-vivo elec­tro­physiology;
  • 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.
