Summary of the positions
To design, plan and execute a research project titled “Identification of novel stress response regulators using zebrafish.” You will be involved in a proteomic or genomic-based screen to look for molecules that are induced by elevated stress level and which causally lead to behavioural phenotypes that are observed in humans that suffer from stress-induced disorders such as depression.

This model will be used to systematically search for molecules that link elevated stress level and behavioural dysregulation.
