Consider making the switch to the University of Freiburg: It is one of the most renowned and strongest research universities in Germany, with a history spanning more than 500 years. You’ll engage in top-notch research and teaching with a unique spectrum of disciplines, perspectives, and people - right in the heart of one of Germany’s most beautiful cities.
The University of Freiburg’s human resources policy is oriented toward the principles of equal opportunity and diversity. The university is committed to the goal of creating a family-friendly university.

The Department of Neuroanatomy at the Institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology offers

Starting Date: at the earliest possible date

Applications are invited for a PostDoc and a PhD position to work with Prof. Andreas Vlachos (Institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Department of Neuroanatomy, Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Germany) in an NIH-RO1 funded project aimed at deciphering the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neural plasticity induced by non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS).

Successful applicants will combine electrophysiology and optical stimulation/imaging experiments in rodent and human brain tissue to assess effects of electromagnetic fields (i.e., transcranial magnetic stimulation, TMS). Visits to our collaborators in the US for short-term and long-term periods of time to learn additional techniques (e.g., in vivo recordings and computational modeling) are part of the activities in this project.

The successful candidate should have a background in neurobiology/neuroscience, engineering, physics or closely related field. Experience in electrophysiology, optogenetics, functional optical imaging and tissue culturing techniques is highly desirable.

The appointment can start any time after October 1st in 2019.

Please submit your application including CV, list of publications, statement of research interests and names and email addresses of three references.

The project is related to the following publications:

Lenz M, Galanis C, Müller-Dahlhaus F, Opitz A, Wierenga CJ, Szabó G, Ziemann U, Deller T, Funke K, Vlachos A (2016) Repetitive magnetic stimulation induces plasticity of inhibitory synapses. Nature Communications 7:10020

Lenz M, Platschek S, Priesemann V, Becker D, Willems LM, Ziemann U, Deller T, Müller-Dahlhaus F, Jedlicka P, Vlachos A (2015) Repetitive magnetic stimulation induces plasticity of excitatory postsynapses on proximal dendrites of cultured mouse CA1 pyramidal neurons. Brain Structure & Function 220:3323-3337.
