A Ph.D. student position is available in the Research Group Synaptic Plasticity, at the Hertie-Institute for Clinical Brain Research, University of Tuebingen, Germany. Our group addresses the molecular and cellular basis of synaptic plasticity. In particular, we focus on pathways that are normally involved in refining synaptic circuits via the "physiological" elimination of specific synapses. The misregulation of such pathways triggers massive, pathological loss of synapses. Thus, our work aims to achieve a better mechanistic understanding of altered synaptic plasticity in the diseased brain. Specifically, we are interested in characterizing which alterations are causative, and which are merely adaptations to neurodegenerative diseases.
