join our team!

We are an international research team with several ongoing ERC- and WWTF-funded research projects that aim to understand the neurobiological mechanisms and functions of signaling molecules and synaptic circuits in the brain using electrophysiological, behavioral, genetic and in vivo imaging tools. We welcome interested and highly motivated scientists from all over the world. See details below and follow us on Twitter to see the newest job announcements. 

Master thesis and research internships

To join a specific project for your Master’s thesis, please have a look at our current job posting at FENS and here. Inquiries from highly talented and motivated students who are interested in a 6-12 months research internship are always welcome. Registration with your current home university is required. Application for ERASMUS fellowships or other funding opportunities (click here for a fellowship database) is highly recommended. For pre-inquiries, contact and attach your CV, motivation letter and grades. 


Research technicians

If you are interested in supporting our team with behavioral testing, staining techniques, histology and general lab maintenance, please have a look at our newest job posting for a fully-funded research technician position here.
