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.
