Information
Our group is focussing on the molecular characterization of axonal pathfinding during the development of the nervous system. Successful applicants will study the role of the second messenger cGMP in signalling processes during axonal pathfinding. The project combines a variety of biochemical, molecular, and cell-biological techniques with the analysis of transgenic mouse lines. Applicants should have a sound background in molecular biology and biochemistry, preferably with experience in cell cultivation.
