2.) 3 PhD students in the framework of an accepted H2020 European Training Network

The ITN project aims to develop a positron emission tomography (PET) tracer to non-invasively assess α-synuclein aggregation in the brain of patients with Parkinson´s disease (PD). In contrast to the situation in Alzheimer´s disease, biomarkers to detect α-synuclein oligomers or aggregates in PD are still missing. The PhD fellowships are part of a training programme PET-AlphaSy consisting in total 15 PhD students located in 5 European countries (Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium). The fellows will attend common training sessions, e.g. within radiopharmaceutical chemistry or imaging and have secondments at the corresponding partner universities and companies.

We are looking for 3 highly motivated PhD students with a focus in:

Chemistry/Biochemistry/Biology (f/m)

Chemistry/Biochemistry (f/m)

Chemistry/Biochemistry (f/m)


3.) PhD student ((Bio-)Chemistry, Biology, Physics)

In cooperation with an international industrial partner and the Institute for Clinical and Experimental Transfusion Medicine, we are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated PhD student ((Bio-)Chemistry, Biology, Physics), who is eager to work in an interdisciplinary environment to take current capabilities of in vivo blood diagnostics using magnetic resonance technologies (MRI/NMR) to the next level.
