Scholarship Description: Applications are invited for a PhD fellowship in Neurosciences / Cell Biology for the project entitled “Role of orexin signalling in energy homeostasis and reward processing”. The doctoral studies will be carried out in the group of Olaf Jöhren.The doctoral fellow will use molecular techniques and behavioural tests in mice. The project is funded by the DFG and part of the CRC/Transregio (SFB 134) “Ingestive Behaviour: Homoeostasis and Reward” (Host University: University of Lübeck, Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Hendrik Lehnert).

The doctoral studies will be carried out in the group of Olaf Jöhren and will address orexin/hypocretin signalling in dopaminergic neurons using adeno-associated virus (AAV)-mediated gene delivery to define novel molecular mechanisms integrating homeostatic and hedonic control of energy homeostasis. The doctoral fellow will use molecular techniques and behavioural tests in mice.

Number of award(s): Thirteen PhD positions are available.

Duration of award(s): PhD position in Neuroscience is available for 3 years.

What does it cover? Salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale (TVL E13, 65%).

How To Apply: To apply please send your application including a CV, certificates of school graduation and academic degrees, and letters of recommendation to: Prof. Dr. Olaf Jöhren (Supervisor), Institute of Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Lübeck.
