CBBS-Postdoctoral Network

The Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences (CBBS) Magdeburg announces a call for 4 postdoctoral positions within the newly founded CBBS Postdoctoral Network funded by the Leibniz Association.
Excellent young scientists up to 4 years after obtaining their doctoral degree may apply. Applications are invited across the whole range of neuroscientific research of the CBBS. All applicants must provide a written commitment from a Magdeburg host lab headed by a CBBS member, which will provide cofinancing of the project. A list of CBBS members and labs participating in this program is available at and here:

The appointees will benefit from the postdoctoral network providing a program for training and education of postdoctoral researchers with a KAP (knowledge, attitude, practice) assessment center to individually coach its members. Further coaching will be focused on translational aspects of their work to raise awareness for this important issue and to provide knowledge about legal and administrative issues of patenting, licensing or spin-off creation as well as outreach to the academic and social community. The CBBS offers excellent working conditions in Magdeburg as one of Germany’s leading centers for Neurobiology and Brain Sciences.

The primary criterion for appointment will be academic excellence, but also originality of the proposal.

The positions are available from Fall 2015 for two years.

Please send a PDF file, including a cover letter with a CV, a description of the research project accompanied by a letter of commitment by the Magdeburg host, a list of publications and other merits, and a copy of your doctoral degree certificate no later than June 15, 2015, to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Two letters of recommendation for the applicant shall be emailed directly to the CBBS office. Detailed guidelines for application can be downloaded here.

The CBBS is a network of neuroscientists from the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology, and the German Research Center of Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE). It has more than 80 members and receives funding from the state of Saxony-Anhalt, the Leibniz Association, and the European Union.

The CBBS observes the regulations of the German Equal Opportunity Law.
