Masterarbeit - Prof. Zille


The Division of Pharmacology and Toxicology of the University of Vienna is offering a

Master thesis

in the research group Cerebrovascular Pharmacology. Our group develops novel therapeutic options for neurological diseases, with a particular focus on stroke, brain hemorrhage, vascular dementia, and brain aging. Using cutting-edge scientific approaches and technologies, we aim to better understand the nervous system and its interactions with the body. This enables us to develop innovative therapies for prevention, cytoprotection, regeneration, and recovery of motor and cognitive function that are limited in patients suffering from these devastating diseases.

Your tasks will comprise:

  • Cell culture (primary brain cells and cell lines)

  • Development of test systems for the analysis of brain injury

  • Different cell-based assays

  • Microscopy

  • Data analysis

We are looking for a highly motivated person who:

  • Is interested in working with cells

  • Is interested in neuroscience

  • Has experience in cell culture work (this is a plus)

  • Works reliably (appropriate training will be provided)

  • Is a team player

  • Is fluent in English

  • Can invest at least 6 months of time

We offer:

  • An interesting project with some room for own ideas
