Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Bio­logy, Chair of Zoo­logy and Ani­mal Phy­sio­logy

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion.

For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate (m/f/x)

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

The posi­tion is star­ting Janu­ary 1, 2023. The posi­tion com­pri­ses 65 % of the full­time wee­kly hours and is limi­ted until June 30, 2024 with the option for exten­sion. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz-WissZeitVG). The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion.
The chair aims to ana­lyze the meta­bo­lic home­o­sta­sis of the cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem. Dis­tur­bance of neural meta­bo­lism is a fea­ture of many neu­ro­de­ge­ne­ra­tive disea­ses. Several open ques­ti­ons are being addres­sed using Dro­so­phila: How are meta­bo­li­tes dis­tri­bu­ted throughout the brain? How is the amount of meta­bo­li­tes impor­ted and sup­plied to the neu­rons cou­pled to neu­ro­nal activity? How does neural meta­bo­lism adapt to sub-opti­mal or even adverse con­di­ti­ons?

Working field:

In the DFG-fun­ded pro­ject, the suc­cess­ful can­di­date will ana­lyze nut­ri­ent trans­port across the blood brain bar­rier and study poten­tial dif­fe­ren­ces in meta­bo­lite usage of dif­fe­rent neural cell types. Gene­ti­cally encoded fluo­re­scent meta­bo­lite nano­sen­sors will be used to unra­vel meta­bo­lite tur­no­ver and trans­port. The pro­ject will fur­ther com­prise methods of mole­cu­lar cloning, state of the art Dro­so­phila geno­mic engi­nee­ring and micro­scopy tech­ni­ques.


very good uni­ver­sity degree (M.Sc. or equi­va­lent) in Bio­logy, Bio­che­mi­stry or rela­ted fields. Indi­vi­du­als with a strong back­ground in cell bio­logy, deve­lop­men­tal bio­logy or mole­cu­lar bio­logy are encou­ra­ged to apply. Expe­ri­ence in Dro­so­phila gene­tics and live micro­scopy would be hel­pful, but is not essen­tial.

How to apply:

App­li­ca­ti­ons from women are par­ti­cu­larly wel­come. The same app­lies to people with disa­bi­li­ties.
