Dear all,


I have an available Ph.D. position. Please forward the ad to students
that may be interested (thanks!):



Ph.D. position (4 years)


available in the Department of Human Genetics at the

Nijmegen Centre of Molecular Life Science (NCMLS),

Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre (Nijmegen, the Netherlands)



We are currently seeking a Ph.D. fellow for the research group of Dr.
Annette Schenck. The successful applicant will join a young, highly
motivated and interdisciplinary team focusing on functional studies of
disease genes implicated in mental retardation. The group uses the
fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism to dissect
molecular networks and mechanisms underlying neuronal connectivity,
function and behaviour. It operates in close association with the Human
Genetics Lab of Dr. Hans van Bokhoven who continuously identifies novel
genes implicated in brain diseases.


Enthusiastic, creative and interactive individuals with a background in
genetics, molecular, cell, developmental and/or neurobiology and a
MSc/diploma in life sciences are encouraged to apply. Previous
experience with Drosophila or other model organisms would be
advantageous, but is not obligatory.


Nijmegen is the Netherlands' oldest city. It offers historic sites and
museums, borders beautiful forest countryside and polder landscapes and
hosts one of the Netherland's most successful universities. The NCMLS,
endowed with state-of-the-art equipment and core facilities, is amongst
the leading European centres of biomedical research. Further information
on our research and research environment can be found at the institute's

and www.ncmls.eu <http://www.ncmls.eu> .

The operating language of the Institute is English.


Please send your application (letter of motivation, complete curriculum
vitae) and at least two reference letters before April 15th to:
