Open positions

We seek Ph.D. students and postdocs. for projects aiming to better understand the molecular mechanisms controlling brain development and their implications in adult neurological and psychiatric disorders. For our research we use genetically engineered mouse mutants combined with behavioral and pharmacological studies.

Our university provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services, interdisciplinary scientific training programs in an international environment. Our working language is English.
