You will collaborate with and supervise Master’s students, and in the longer run possibly also PhD students. You will get some exposure to teaching, but only to a minor extent.

You hold a PhD in neurobiology and are interested in a scientific career. Previous experience with mouse or Drosophila genetics is expected. We are a dynamic international lab, so a good command of English is essential. You are capable of working in a team as well as independently.
