Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - BIO­TEC, Pro­fes­sur für Zel­lu­läre Netz­werke und Sys­teme

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 / PhD Stu­dent (m/f/x)


At the Bio­tech­no­logy Cen­ter (BIO­TEC), an Insti­tute of the Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar and Cel­lu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring (CMCB), the Chair of Cel­lu­lar Cir­cuits and Sys­tems (Prof. Dr. Hen­rik Bring­mann) offers a posi­tion as

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

Working field:

Sleep is essen­tial, yet its mole­cu­lar func­tions are not known. Sleep is indu­ced by sleep-active neu­rons that con­trol important aspects of phy­sio­logy such as lon­ge­vity, health, lear­ning + memory, meta­bo­lism and repro­duc­tion. This pro­ject will study how sleep-active neu­rons con­trol phy­sio­lo­gi­cal bene­fits at the mole­cu­lar level in mouse models of sleep loss or sleep gain. The mouse work of the Chair encom­pas­ses modern gene­tic methods such as con­di­tio­nal alle­les and ste­reot­ac­tic injec­tion of AAV, elec­tro­phy­sio­logy, beha­vio­ral assays, omics ana­ly­ses and ima­ging.


The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will hold an excel­lent uni­ver­sity degree (MSc or equi­va­lent) in bio­che­mi­stry, mole­cu­lar bio­logy, neu­ro­sci­ence or a rela­ted disci­pline. It is expec­ted that the can­di­date has excel­lent Eng­lish com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills. The PhD stu­dent should have a high inter­nal moti­va­tion, the abi­lity to work both inde­pendently as well as a team, and should have good orga­ni­za­tio­nal skills. Expe­ri­ence with mouse models and the respec­tive for­mal qua­li­fi­ca­tion is desi­red but not abso­lutely necessary.
