Postdoc Position in Developmental Neurobiology at Uni of Basel, Switzerland

University of Basel, postdoctoral Position in Developmental Neurobiology
Applications are invited for a Neurobiologist/Cell Biologist with a strong background in Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (CLSM), Molecular Biology/Biochemistry and Cell Culture techniques. We investigate mechanisms of synapse formation, using the neuromuscular junction as an experimental paradigm. The successful candidate will investigate the organization of a subsynaptic network of microtubules and its roles in the accumulation of acetylcholine receptors at the synapse. To this end genetically modified mice and muscle cell lines are examined with CLSM and TIRF microscopy, molecular biological and biochemical tools.
Applicants should have a PhD and research experience in cell biology, preferably in the analysis of the cytoskeleton. We offer a position for 14 months to complete an ongoing research project in an exciting environment at the Pharmazentrum/Biozentrum. Applications from motivated candidates should comprise a detailed CV and two letters of recommendation. They should be sent to:
