Modulation of Stress and Resilience
We investigate the effects of acute and chronic stressors on cortical neuronal and glial networks in mice and explore pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to modulate stress vulnerability. For this, we use a broad set of behavioral testing and learning paradigms, in vivo-imaging techniques (two-photon microscopy, intrinsic optical signal imaging), electrophysiology as well as molecular approaches.
Successful candidates will work under the direct supervision of Dr. Anne-Kathrin Gellner and Prof. Valentin Stein. We are looking for outstanding and highly motivated, team-oriented candidates with a strong interest in eurobiology. Prior research experience with animal experimentation, microscopy, or electrophysiology techniques is advantageous. Candidates should hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in Neuroscience, Biological Science, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field.
