Open position: PhD student position in Neuroimmunology

The Institute for Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis Research in Göttingen is looking for a highly motivated person with a clear commitment to basic research, who would like to carry out a PhD project with us.

Open Position - We are looking for a PhD

A PhD position in the area of in vivo imaging of the rodent nervous system is available in the Misgeld lab at TUM’s Institute of Neuronal Cell Biology. The position is available starting earliest 1.9.2022.

The Misgeld lab at the Institute of Neuronal Cell Biology of Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Disease (DZNE) develops and uses cutting-edge in vivo imaging and omics tools to study axon homeostasis and degeneration with a focus on neuronal cell biology and axon-glial interactions. We are interested in the mechanisms that establish and maintain axonal health, as well as in the processes that cause axon pathology during neurodegeneration and -inflammation (in diseases such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or spinal cord injury).
