PhD positions in Technau lab

Univ. of Vienna

POSITION 1:

The Technau lab at the University of Vienna offers a 3 year PhD student position in the frame of an FWF-funded project on "Germ layer specification in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis".

The project addresses the developmental and evolutionary origin of germ layers during early development of the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis, which consists of only two cell layers. The methods will include single cell RNAseq/ATAC-seq, in combination with gene knockdowns and CRISPR/Cas9 knockouts, ChIP-seq, transgenics and in vivo microscopy.

The successful candidate has obtained a Master degree in Biology. Expertise in Molecular or Developmental biology, EvoDevo and  bioinformatics is desirable. We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated student ready to work together in an international and dynamic team of active and driven researchers. For more information on the Department and the Technau lab see: https://neurodevbio.univie.ac.at

The Department is part of the Faculty of Life Sciences, which is located in a brand-new building at the Vienna BioCenter  (https://www.viennabiocenter.org), one of the major hubs of Life Sciences in Europe.

The selected applicant is required to be accepted at the VBC Graduate school or the Vienna Doctoral school Ecology and Evolution.

The University of Vienna stands for equal opportunities and diversity. Qualified female candidates are especially invited to apply. Disabled persons will be given preference if they are equally qualified. Questions and applications (one single PDF containing a letter of motivation,  CV, at least 2 letters of recommendation) should be directed to Ulrich.technau 'at' univie.ac.at


POSITION 2:

The Technau lab at the University of Vienna offers a 3 year PhD student position in the frame of an FWF-funded project on "Functional dissection of muscle development in the sea anemone Nematostella".

In Bilateria, muscles are a major derivatives of the mesoderm. However, muscle cell types also develop in non-bilaterian animals, such as cnidarians, which consist of only two cell layers. The project addresses the developmental and evolutionary origin of muscle cell types in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis. It will also investigate the basis of neuronal regulation of muscles in Nematostella. The methods will include single cell RNAseq/ATAC- seq, in combination with gene knockdowns and CRISPR/Cas9 knockouts, ChIP-seq, generation of transgenics and correlative electron and confocal microscopy.

The successful candidate has obtained a Master degree in Biology. Expertise in Molecular or Developmental biology, EvoDevo and bioinformatics is desirable. We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated student ready to work together in an international and dynamic team of active and driven researchers.
