to be employed under a 3 year (WissZeitVG) contract.
Current analgesics often only provide partial pain relief. Natural toxins are powerful tools for the identification of novel mechanisms. In a DFG-funded project,
we will test natural toxins for pain-modulating activity. Central to our work is an innovative automated microscopy screening approach. Active toxins will be analyzed
extensively for their cellular mechanisms as well as their action in behavioral experiments.
Your responsibilities will include:
High Content Screening Microscopy-based analysis of venoms and toxins
Pharmacological analysis of cellular mechanisms
Animal behaviour experiments on pain models
Winning Master Thesis in the Field of Life Sciences
Profound knowledge and experience in at least two of the following topics:
Behavioural pain research
Quantitative image analysis
Following DFG rules your salary will be based on TV-L.
