Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen e.V. (DZNE) - Rodriguez -Muela’s lab

The Rodríguez -Muela’s team is a European Research Council (ERC) funded lab part of the Center for Regenerative Therapies (CRTD) at the TU Dresden, focused on neurodegeneration and stem cell research ( In addition, the Rodríguez -Muela’s lab is part of German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE-Dresden), a research institute focused on fundamental neuroscience with a translational outlook ( and is affiliated to the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), pioneering basic research on cell biology, stem cells and organoids ( These three multidisciplinary and international research institutes offer an outstanding research environment and all types of cutting-edge technology platforms and are located only a couple of minutes walking distance from each other.

Postdoctoral position


to study the developmental basis of neurodegeneration-

Working field:

At the Rodriguez -Muela’s lab, we aim to understand the molecular principles that govern the selective neuronal vulnerability characteristic of all neurodegenerative diseases. We specifically focus on the motor neuron diseases SMA and ALS and in Alzheimer’s disease and use as main model system human iPSC-derived 2D and 3D models.


We are searching for an outstanding researcher with a genuine enthusiasm for our research topics and strong background in neuroscience, developmental neurobiology and genetics.

  • PhD degree in biology, biomedicine or related subject
  • high quality first-author publication/s in a relevant field
  • human iPSC work, organoid technology, strong cellular and biochemistry techniques (experience in - cloning and genome editing are a plus)
  • experience on single cell RNAseq analysis (basic computational knowledge on ATACseq and epigenetics are a plus)
  • strong English communication, organization and interpersonal skills
  • most importantly, lots of curiosity, motivation, creativity and enthusiasm

What we offer:

  • the opportunity to implement your own ideas and lead an exciting, clinically relevant, research project
  • working in a young, friendly and innovative team of highly motivated scientists
  • outstanding research environment in biomedicine, neuroscience and stem cell biology that promotes - an interdisciplinary and international exchange and offers numerous possibilities for your professional and personal development
  • access to cutting-edge scientific infrastructure and collaborations with clinical teams
