The Melzer lab is located in the Center for Brain Research (Department of Neuronal Cell Biology) at Medical University of Vienna. We study molecular and neuronal mechanisms of emotion and cognition with a particular interest in neuropeptidergic signaling. We use a broad range of imaging and electrophysiological recording techniques combined with genetic tools such as CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knockout and optogenetic/chemogenetic manipulation of selected neuronal circuits.


We are recruiting for several ERC- and WWTF-funded positions. Come join our team!
