Collaborative post-doctoral training program
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) is a center of excellence within the Helmholtz Association that performs translational research on Neurodegenerative Diseases. The center includes nine high-performing sites in Berlin, Bonn, Dresden, Göttingen, Magdeburg, Munich, Rostock/Greifswald, Tübingen and Witten. The DZNE cooperates closely with universities, their clinics and other research facilities.
The Neuroscience Center of Excellence at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) pursues a multidisciplinary research approach to understand brain function and diseases affecting the nervous system.
The DZNE and LSUHSC are pleased to announce a collaborative post-doctoral training program (Code 1381/2016/5) in neurodegenerative diseases. Applications are now being accepted for four-year joint, advanced post-doctoral positions within this new program, structured as two initial years at LSUHSC (New Orleans) followed by two years at the DZNE (Bonn). The training will focus on the emerging research areas of lipidomics and retinal degeneration.
We seek outstanding candidates (f/m) who have obtained MD and/or PhD degrees within the past four years, who have demonstrated experience and an excellent publication record in neuroscience or cell biology research. Strong motivation, the ability to work independently and design/interpret experiments are essential, together with excellent organisational skills and fluency in English. Commitment to the full four-year term is required. A generous package of employment salary and benefits will be provided throughout by the DZNE, as determined by the German Public Sector Collective Agreement (Tarifvertrag für den öffentlichen Dienst – TVöD). Bench fees will be paid by the host institutions (LSUHSC and DZNE).
The DZNE is an equal opportunity employer. The DZNE is committed to employing disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply.
