Careers

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Tibor Harkany

The Harkany lab at the Medical University of Vienna is recruiting


POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS

who are expected to join our projects within the framework of an
ERC Advanced Grant Award titled:

’Life-long cross-generational priming of the hypothalamus for obesity`

Research focus is on the life-long molecular consequences of metabolic
programming in the developing hypothalamus upon maternal obesity during
pregnancy. The concept idea stems from our recent studies on the
developmental rules establishing neuronal diversity in the hypothalamus
(Romanov et al., Nat Neurosci (2017), Romanov et al. Nature (2020)) and how
maternal diets enriched in polyunsaturated fatty acids affect cortical architecture
and function in the offspring (Cinquina et al., Mol. Psychiatry (2020)).


We are looking for talented and committed individuals with significant
experience in one or more of the disciplines relevant to our work, including data
processing for single-cell RNA-seq/epigenetics, developmental neurobiology,
circuit neurobiology using modern genetic manipulations, or intact tissue
imaging and recosntructive neuroanatomy.

Two positions are available for 5 years each.

Inquiries shall be directed to: Ms. Alexandra Tilscher:
alexandra.tilscher@meduniwien.ac.at

Deadline: August 1st , 2022

The Keimpema lab at the Medical University of Vienna, Center for
Brain Research, Austria, is offering a position as

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS

With the candidate expected to join our project within the framework
of an Austrian FWF Grant Award

The focus of this project revolves around the molecular signaling pathways
underlying oxytocin signaling in the control of social olfactory memory and
behavior. This project will combine single cell transcriptomics and proteomics with
high resolution imaging technologies to discover novel interacting partners
downstream of oxytocin receptor signaling in the olfactory cortex on a neuronal
level. These findings will subsequently be integrated and coupled to social
olfactory memory formation and retrieval to disentangle the molecular
mechanisms modulating olfactory information processing.


We are looking for a talented and committed individual with significant knowledge
of Neuroscience and hands-on experience in one or more of the disciplines
relevant to our work, including neuroanatomy, molecular biology and (transgenic)
mouse models. A background in behavioral studies and neuropeptide work is
advantageous
.

The position is available for 3 years

Inquiries shall be directed to: Dr. Erik Keimpema (erik.keimpema@medunwien.ac.at)

Deadline: August 1st , 2022.
