A master project is available at the Department of Genetics & Molecular Neurobiology to study mechanisms leading to mental retardation in RASopathy models. The project is focussed on the behavioral and biochemical analysis of different genetic models of RASopahties (such as Noonan Syndrome) as part of the German Network for Rare Disorders. State-of-the-art facilities are available. The successful applicant should demonstrate profound knowledge in molecular and behavioral neuroscience, enthusiasm for experimental brain research and excellent communication skills. Financial support through a master stipend will be available for a period of 6 months.
Applications with CV, transcript of records, and a short letter of motivation (max 250 words) should be sent to:
