About us:

We are looking for a highly motivated and talented postdoc to join the Robles group, Systems Chronobiology, at the LMU Munich, Germany. We have an open position funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Neurodegeneration Challenge Network (NCDN) within a collaborative project together with Angel Barco’s laboratory (Neuroscience Institute, Alicante, Spain). The overarching aim of the project is to characterize circadian and sleep-driven nuclear multi-omics dynamics in diverse mouse brain cells using high-end RNAseq and proteomics technology.

The Robles group employs a wide range of mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics methods to study, in health and diseases, circadian and sleep-driven molecular mechanisms (click here to learn more about the group).
