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!
