Postdoctoral researcher with focus on neuroendocrinology

Institute of Behavioural Physiology, Research Institute for Farm Animal Biology
Dummerstorf, Germany

The successful candidate will join the Psychophysiology Unit, which together with the Ethology Unit is located within the Institute of Behavioral Physiology. We follow an interdisciplinary approach to investigate the biological basis of farm animal behavior with the aim of improving the health and welfare of farm animals. Central research topics include neuroendocrine influences on the social behaviour of farm animals, the reward and motivational system as well as the neuroendocrine modulation of immune competence. The institute conducts research on several farm animal species, with the pig as the primary animal model. The department has a range of laboratory analytical methods available, including HPLC, enzyme‐immune assays, qRT‐PCR, cell culture methods, and others. We are looking for a candidate who will develop his or her own research program as well as contribute to ongoing research projects and raise external funding.
