Basel University  (Switzerland):
post-doc position   &   PhD  Studentship in  Neurobiology
Positions available from winter 1994!

At the interface between clinical and basic research we are a team 
using molecular and cellular techniques to study pathogenic 
mechanisms of autoimmune demyelinating and neurodegenerative 
diseases. The projects will focus on a newly described neuronal 
receptor tyrosine kinase (Neuroscience, in press). Our results 
indicate that functional characterization of this receptor in 
primary neuronal cultures in the rat will be a promising approach. 
A thesis could study the expression of this highly regulated gene 
and in particular the subcellular localization of the protein. 
Another possibility involves the analysis of receptor expression 
in human brain and characterization of its deregulated expression 
in brain tumors. Appropriate affinity purified antibodies are 

Candidates for the PhD studentship should have a First or Upper 
Second Class Honours Degree (or equivalent) in one of the Life 
Sciences. The successful applicant will undertake the post-
graduate PhD program at the Biocentre of Basel University. The 
salaries correspond to Swiss National Fonds regulations.
