Our research is aimed at understanding mechanisms of myelination and axo-glial coupling in the peripheral nervous system in health and disease. We are particularly interested in the pathophysiology of hereditary neuropathies like Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, with the final goal to develop treatments for patients. We employ biochemical, biophysical and cell biological approaches, as well as conduct therapy studies in rodent models of hereditary neuropathies (see refs: Fledrich et al., Nat Med 2014, Fledrich et al., Nat commun 2018, Prukop et al., Plos one 2019, Fledrich et al., Nat commun 2019).
Our group is located at the University Medical Center Göttingen and at the Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine in Göttingen, Germany, where we are able to cover a complete range from basic to preclinical research to translation to patients. We have access to state-of-the art instrumentation for electron and light microscopy (TEM, FIB-SEM, Surface enhanced Raman microscopy) and various modern biochemical and biophysical techniques.
The project will focus on the analysis of crucial pathways in metabolic coupling between Schwann cells and axons, as well as their role in the pathogenesis of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease 1A.
We are looking for enthusiastic, open-minded candidates with a keen interest in energy metabolism and myelin biology. Applicants should hold a M.Sc. or equivalent degree in the life sciences or a related discipline. Previous experience in metabol(om)ic and animal research is advantageous, but not required. Fluent English language skills are required. We are an international group with a strong team spirit and value an open-minded and collaborative working atmosphere.
Applications should consist of a single PDF containing a short statement of motivation and previous experience, a CV, and the names and contacts of two references and should be sent to email@example.com.
The University Medical Center Göttingen is committed to professional equality. We therefore seek to increase the proportion of under-represented genders. Applicants with disabilities and equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
