Open Position: Technical Assistant for Electron Microscopy
The Munich Cluster for Systems Neurology (SyNergy) deciphers the interplay of different path mechanisms in the development of neurological diseases (http://www.synergy-munich.de). The researchers involved are investigating how inflammatory reactions influence neurodegenerative processes, what interactions microvascular and degenerative mechanisms of damage unfold and, finally, how immune cells interact with the blood-brain barrier.
The SyNergy Nanoscale Hub offers ultrastructural analysis using 2D and volume room temperature electron microscopy (TEM and SEM). Our focus is on correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) and technical developments based on the array tomography. We are a young team with diverse collaborations and enjoy tackling new tasks.
The SyNergy Nanoscale Hub and the Technical University of Munich are looking to recruit a
