PhD Position in Neurodevelopmental Biology : Ulm, Germany
Our group focuses on transcription factors that are essential for normal neocortical development. For our studies we use conditional mutant mice (Cre/loxP system) that show a complex phenotype in the CNS.
Besides a reduced neocortex, we could observe defective migration and abnormal terminal differentiation of cortical neurons. The molecular mechanisms, that underlie these findings, yet remain incompletely characterized.
We offer a grant-funded ttp://www.uni-ulm.de/einrichtungen/mm.html).position in a well-equipped lab with the possibility to join the International Graduate School in Molecular Medicine Ulm (h
