Postdoc Position  


for 2 years (with the possibility of an extension), TVL-L 13, 100 %, starting from 01.04.2022.


A PhD in Biology/Medicine or a related discipline is required. Deep knowledge of Molecular Biology (ELISA, RNA-Seq, design/production of viruses, etc.) and/or (in vivo) calcium imaging including the corresponding analysis methods (Matlab) as well as experience in Al/data science would be appreciated

We offer an excellent carreer perspective including the possibility of freely choosing the research area out of the main institute's research fields, sound didactic training, specialization in physiology (Fachphysiologin) and habilitation. 

 The main institute's research fields inlcude: 

- analysis of the interaction between the nervous and immune systems of the brain

- priming and senescence of microglia,

- in vivo analysis of signal processing in the olfactory bulb,

- cellular/molecular basis of sleep-mediated learning,

- mechanisms of integration of adult stem cells in preesisting neural networks, 

- normal brain aging and Alzheimer's disease,


The candidate is welcome to contribute to the teaching in neurophysiology, and to participate in the "Graduate School of Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience" or the Ph.D. program "Experimental Medicine"

Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience 

Master and doctoral training within two graduate programs: 

The graduate program in Neural & Behavioural Sciences (International Max Planck Research School ): 

The graduate program in Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience: 


MD/PhD Program in Experimental Medicine  

The PhD Program in Experimental Medicine aims at students that have graduated from a medical school (German "Staatsexamen " or equivalent), hold a Diploma or Master of Science degree in the Life sciences or related disciplines (e.g. biomedical sciences, biology, biochemistry, physics, chemistry, psychology, computer sciences, engineering) and seek a challenging education for a future position in the field of medical research. 

Highly motivated and especially talented students already enrolled in the MD-equivalent degree programs „Staatsexamen Humanmedizin“ or „Staatsexamen Zahnmedizin“ at the University of Tübingen may also be eligible to participate in a double-degree (MD/PhD) program after passing their intermediate examinations. 

The regular duration of the program is 6 semesters (3 years). Further information on the Program you will find here:
