Development of an electrophysiological in vitro neurotoxicology assay
In a new project that started september '09 we evaluate the activity
patterns in neuronal networks in vitro to assess developmental neurotoxicity
(DNT) in long-term multi-electrode electrophysiological recordings. The
result should contribute to the development of pharmacological safety tests
that would reduce the number of animals needed for DNT testing of industrial
A PhD or doctoral degree in natural sciences is required.
The candidate should have extensive experience with cell cultures and
ideally also with electrophysiological recordings and their analysis.
Knowledge on pharmacological testing would be a plus.
You would work in an interdisciplinary and international group interested in
the properties of neuronal networks and their pathologies. The group is
located at the IMTEK, an institute of the technical
and is well embedded in the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience
and the Bernstein Focus Neurotechnology in Freiburg.
The position is limited to 2 years. The salary is based on TV-L E13
(40.700-47.200 EUR depending on relevant work experience).
