PhD Position: Novel bio-imaging technologies in zebrafish

Updated: 4 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 31 Aug 2021

At the Institute of Molecular Biology of the University of Innsbruck (https://www.uibk.ac.at/molbiol/research/ebio/index.html.en ), we are recruiting a PhD student to participate in an exciting interdisciplinary project embedded within an international EU-funded consortium.

The project SWIMMOT (http://www.swimmot.researchproject.at/index.htm ) aims to develop innovative molecular imaging methods based on switchable contrast agents combined with magneto-plasmonic imaging. The Innsbruck contribution to the project encompasses application of the novel visualization modalities in the model organism zebrafish to elucidate pancreatic beta cell biology and illuminate progression of diabetes-associated retinal complications.

The research group is focused on studying beta cell function and diabetes in the vertebrate model organism zebrafish. We use genetic disease models, modern molecular biology approaches, and innovative imaging and analysis methods.

We offer a dynamic, friendly, and international working environment in the heart of the Alps. The Leopold-Franzens University of Innsbruck is the largest research and education institution in western Austria, with more than 28,000 students and 4,500 staff and faculty members. The University of Innsbruck offers excellent facilities for research in a spectacular environment.

Interested applicants should submit the following information: a motivation letter, CV including publication list, a summary of your previous research experiences, grades of Bachelor and Master studies and the contact information for 2-3 references.
