Joining the Lab

We are looking for a talented and motivated fellow (at the PhD or postdoctoral level) to fill a new position focusing on the contribution of the cortical and hippocampal neuro-glial networks to memory processing during sleep. This is a collaborative project between several CIN ( labs and is embedded into a prospective DFG Research Unit. Our lab has a strong background in in vivo analyses of neuro-glial signaling and is characterized by a friendly, collaborative attitude. Further information about the lab may be found at and

The position can be filled at the postdoctoral or PhD student level depending on the best available candidates. Preference will be given to candidates with a background in neuroscience, molecular biology, in vivo imaging, mathematics/computational neuroscience. The successful PhD candidate can choose one of the well structured training programs (International Max Planck Research School “The Mechanisms of Mental Function and Dysfunction”; Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience or PhD program in Experimental Medicine phd-studiengang). The postdoctoral fellow can profit from early carrier support programs of the University of Tübingen


Interested candidates are invited to send a CV, a summary of previous research (2 pages) and a statement of interest (1 page), as well as two names of potential referees to Olga Garaschuk ( Candidates applying by December 15th 2020 will be given full consideration. Requests for information or informal inquiries are welcome.


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:
