Post doctoral and Ph.D. student positions in Chronobiology
Molecular clock mechanisms:
circadian rhythms in C. elegans and N. crassa

The Biological Centre of the University of Groningen has vacancies in the de-
partment of Chronoiology. The aim of research is to discover molecular
mechanisms of the circadian (daily) clock in the powerful genetic model sys-
tems, C. elegans and N. crassa. The circadian clock regulates gene expres-
sion, metabolism, and behaviour and the position therefore offers a broad
training experience, with projects that encompass levels from genome to

Applicants should enjoy working in a team, in a communicative, collegial en-
vironment, but should also be capable of independent work. The lab is em-
bedded in the Department of Chronobiology, a group of international re-
searchers and students with expertise from modeling to behaviour to mo-
lecular clock genetics. We are situated in the large and multi-disciplinary Bio-
logical Centre of the University, 6 km outside of the city centre. The position
is funded by a VICI grant from the NWO, with salary and benefits commensu-
rate with the national scale. Our students are participants in the graduate
school "Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences" (BCN), offering a full array
of training opportunities, from course work to language training.

Applicants who have experience with N. crassa, C. elegans, S. cerevisisae or
molecular genetics will be given priority, as will those with a strong record
and recommendations. You should be fluent in the English language. Your
application should consist of a letter of introduction, explaining your motiva-
tion, and a c.v. including names and contact information for three referees.
