Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar and Cel­lu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring (CMCB), Cen­ter for Rege­ne­ra­tive The­ra­pies Dres­den (CRTD), Chair of Neural Deve­lop­ment and Rege­ne­ra­tion

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion.

For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate/ Post­doc (m/f/x)


At the Cen­ter for Rege­ne­ra­tive The­ra­pies Dres­den (CRTD), an insti­tute of the Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar and Cel­lu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring (CMCB), the Chair of Neural Deve­lop­ment and Rege­ne­ra­tion (Prof. Cathe­rina Becker), offers a pro­ject posi­tion as

Rese­arch Asso­ciate/ Post­doc (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Start date is nego­tia­ble, but can be as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion is fun­ded by the Deut­sche For­schungs­ge­mein­schaft (DFG) and will initi­ally be limi­ted for 3 years. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG).

Working field:

Zebra­fish, in con­trast to humans, can replace neu­rons after spi­nal injury from endo­ge­nous stem cells (Becker and Becker, Deve­lop­ment 2022). We have begun to unra­vel a signal­ling pathway by which immune cells inst­ruct spi­nal stem cells to gene­rate new neu­rons after injury (Cavone et al., Dev Cell 2021). Using sin­gle cell geno­mics and epi­ge­no­mics, the post­doc will deve­lop a mecha­nistic under­stan­ding of this uni­que phe­no­me­non and direc­tly test important fac­tors in vivo using CRISPR/Cas9 tech­no­logy. This pro­ject will elu­ci­date the princi­ples of stem cell re-pro­gramming for neu­ro­ge­ne­sis and thus iden­tify new tar­gets for the­ra­peu­tic approa­ches in non-rege­ne­ra­ting spe­cies.


uni­ver­sity and PhD degree in bio­logy or rela­ted fields; high moti­va­tion, and exper­tise in at least one of the fol­lo­wing areas in any model spe­cies:
  • geno­mics and bio­in­for­ma­tics;
  • genera­tion of gene­tic ani­mal models;
  • in-vivo ima­ging and time-lapse micro­scopy;
  • neu­ro­anatomy and his­to­logy.
The inter­na­tio­nal Cen­ter ope­ra­tes in Eng­lish and the­re­fore good know­ledge of both spo­ken and writ­ten Eng­lish is a requi­re­ment.

How to apply:

TUD stri­ves to employ more women in aca­de­mia and rese­arch. We the­re­fore expres­sedly encou­rage women to apply. We wel­come app­li­ca­ti­ons from can­di­da­tes with disa­bi­li­ties. If mul­ti­ple can­di­da­tes prove to be equally qua­li­fied, those with disa­bi­li­ties or with equi­va­lent sta­tus pur­suant to the Ger­man Social Code IX (SGB IX) will receive prio­rity for employ­ment.
Please sub­mit your app­li­ca­tion inclu­ding a CV, state­ment of moti­va­tion, and the names of at least 2 aca­de­mic refe­rees by March 2, 2023 (stam­ped arri­val date app­lies) pre­fer­a­bly via the TU Dres­den Secu­re­Mail Por­tal by sen­ding it as a sin­gle pdf docu­ment to or by mail to: TU Dres­den, CRTD, Pro­fes­sur für Neu­ro­nale Ent­wick­lung und Rege­ne­ra­tion, Frau Prof. Cathe­rina Becker, Fet­scher­straße 105, 01307 Dres­den. Please sub­mit copies only, as your app­li­ca­tion will not be retur­ned to you. Expen­ses incur­red in atten­ding inter­views can­not be reim­bur­sed.
