PhD Position – Brain and Spinal Cord Regeneration (m/f/d)

(Parttime | Application deadline: 31.12.2021)

The Institute of Molecular Regenerative Medicine, part of the Spinal Cord Injury and Tissue Regeneration Center Salzburg (SCI-TReCS) at the Paracelsus Medical University (PMU) is offering

a fully funded PhD position in neuroregeneration research within the PMU PhD program.

SCI-TReCS was founded in 2011 with the aim to investigate regenerative mechanisms in the field of brain and spinal cord injury. The Institute of Molecular Regenerative Medicine team focusses on mechanism and therapy development in aging, neurodegenerative diseases and spinal cord injury. The PMU offers a stimulating and interdisciplinary research environment in regenerative medicine.

Possible start of work: 1st February 2022

Remuneration: The gross annual remuneration is based on the actual FWF recommendations for a PhD position and is listed with: EUR 31.326,40 for 30 hours/week.

Job requirements

You have a background in cell and molecular biology with experience in one or more of the following areas: Brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases, spinal cord injury (SCI) research, RNA/Protein analyses, immunohistochemistry, fluorescence microscopy, electron microscopy, experience with pre-clinical models, and are motivated to perform highly competitive mechanistic research as part of a growing team of excellent researchers.

Possible PhD themes:

  • “Role of CD8+ T-Cells in brain aging and Alzheimer’s Disease”
  • “Role of platelets in brain aging and Alzheimer’s Disease”
  • “Modulation of brain aging and Alzheimer’ Disease pathology by nutrition and lipid metabolism/signaling”
  • ”Brain vascularity in aging and neurodegenerative diseases”
  • “Mechanism of spinal cord regeneration”

Apply information

You are invited to send a short CV, motivation letter (max. 1 page) & max. 3 references (name/e-mail address) to latest 31st December 2021.

Applicants are solely responsible for the direct and indirect costs emanating from their application process.
