PhD Student Position 

Neurobiology and Genetics, Würzburg, Germany



We offer a
PhD position (36 Months, German salary scale TV-L E13 65%) to work on a project
aimed at understanding seasonal adaptation in Drosophila melanogaster.

Starting date: January 2018


Job description: The selected candidate will
investigate the link between the circadian clock and the physiological
processes that it modulates, especially those that are affected by day length.
We will use behavioral, molecular, and
histological approaches to understand whether 1) the master clock in the
brain of the fly is necessary for proper responses to day length, 2) what is
the effect of changing day length on the clock neurons at a cellular level, and
3) how clock mutants are impaired in their ability to interpret day length

Requirements: The candidate is highly motivated
and holds a master degree in Biology or related fields. He /She has a good
command of written/spoken English. We also value, but do not consider
essential, prior experience in Drosophila research, molecular biology, and/or
