Position Description

The In-vivo-NMR group is looking for a PhD student at the earliest possible date. Our research interest focuses on the inflammatory response and the stem cell mediated regeneration of cerebral lesions induced by ischemic stroke in rodent animal models.

The candidate should have background knowledge in experimental and clinical neurosciences with experience and obvious interest in molecular and cellular biology, in vivo imaging techniques, rodent physiology, and histology. We expect the candidate to be enthusiastic about taking part in scientific discussions, to be curious and open minded. Excellent communication skills and a thorough knowledge of English (spoken and written) are necessary to work in a multidisciplinary team.

We offer access to dedicated high field MRI systems (7.0T; 9.4T; 11.7T) for molecular imaging, to
microPET, and optical imaging for noninvasive longitudinal imaging. The lab has fully equipped cell culture facilities, molecular biological, and histology labs.

The project is funded for 3 years and welcomes applicants only who have or expect to obtain an
academic university degree (e.g. Diploma or Master’s degree) in Neurosciences, Biological
Sciences or allied subjects.
