Postdoctoral position in molecular neuroscience project A

  The Department of Molecular Biology seeks a postdoctoral scientist for the project ”Role of gene silencing for maintenance of neuronal identity”. The position is full-time for two years with access as soon as possible or by agreement. Project description and work responsibilities It is not known how stable silencing of alternative gene programs is maintained once a neuronal identity has been established. This project aims to understand fundamental molecular mechanisms underlying maintenance of differentiated serotonergic and dopaminergic neuronal identity and function. Both cell types are involved in several psychiatric disorders which take a huge toll on individuals and society. In addition, midbrain dopamine neurons of the substantia nigra pars compacta constitute the key population whose degeneration is associated with Parkinson’s disease, further underscoring the clinical significance of the project. Work tasks will include but not be limited to designing, performing and analyzin
