OFFER DESCRIPTION

The DFG - funded research training program SynAGE (RTG 2413 / www.synage.de) seeks two highly motivated

PhD students/doctoral students (f/m/d)

to join a team of researchers from the Research Group Neuroplasticity NPlast at the Leibniz-Institute for Neurobiology in Magdeburg (www.lin-magdeburg.de). The training program is focused on the different facets of synaptic aging in health and disease. The posts areavailable initially for a 3-year fixed-term period with a salary of TV-L E13 (65%) starting latest January 1st 2022.

The two thesis projects will address the interplay of synaptic insulin resistance and amyloid-pathology in high-risk aging and provide an inventory of membrane lipids as well as the synaptic proteome in senescent mice. We will try to understand which synaptic changes underlie cognitive decline in aging and which measures can be taken to improve cognition. The Research Group NPlast offers a broad range of techniques to address these questions (www.kreutzlab.com).
