Postdoctoral Scientist in Molecular Neurobiology (1.0 FTE)

Postdoctoral Scientist in Molecular Neurobiology (1.0 FTE)

Radboud University - Faculty of Science

Nijmegen, Netherlands

We are looking for

As a postdoctoral scientist you will work independently on one or two projects that can be selected from a number of options. You will collaborate with and supervise Master’s students, and in the longer run possibly also PhD students. You will get some exposure to teaching, but only to a minor extent. In the long run, the development of an independent research project that can be transferred to a future position is possible.

We are

Within the Department of Molecular Neurobiology, the Storkebaum lab combines Drosophila and mouse genetics to unravel molecular mechanisms underlying motor neurodegenerative disorders. We mainly focus on Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) peripheral neuropathy associated with mutations in tRNA synthetases and on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) associated with mutations in FUS. More broadly, we are interested in the role of mRNA translation defects in axonal degeneration and we recently started a genetic screen to identify genes that are required for axonal maintenance. Our team currently consists of two postdocs, three PhD candidates and two technical assistants. We attracted substantial external funding, including an ERC consolidator grant, two JPND grants, and grants from the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and eRARE3. We have several recent papers published in high-impact journals, including the Journal of Cell Biology, Nature Communications, Acta Neuropathologica and the EMBO Journal. We use a broad spectrum of methods and techniques including the recently developed in vivo NCAT technique, immunohistochemistry, several imaging techniques, molecular biology and biochemistry. We have state-of-the-art facilities for Drosophila and mouse genetics, histology, imaging, molecular biology and biochemistry.

We ask

You are a highly motivated, enthusiastic, critical, creative and team-oriented individual with a strong publication record (including at least one first author paper). You hold a PhD in neurobiology and are interested in a scientific career. Previous experience with mouse or Drosophila genetics is expected. We are a dynamic international lab, so a good command of English is essential. You are capable of working in a team as well as independently.
