We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to explore the stress response pathways specifically regulated by the nuclear translocation of TyrRS and the connection to peripheral neuropathies. You will benefit from our prior knowledge and will test specific hypotheses in well-characterized Drosophila DI-CMTC models using genetic and behavioral analyses, immunohistochemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, fluorescence and confocal microscopy. The molecular findings established for TyrRS will be tested in fly models for other CMT-causing aaRS to identify a potential shared disease pathway. You will further have the opportunity to validate the findings in available cellular DI-CMTC models, including patient-derived iPSC-motor neurons. You will be embedded in an international team of scientists working on complementary topics and model systems, allowing for helpful discussions and fruitful collaborations. At the same time, you will be expected to work independently and drive your own research project. You will supervise Master’s and potentially also Ph.D. students.
