Opportunities for Researchs Group Leaders

CTNR Membership

We cordially invite independent research group leaders with a focus on neuroscience research at the University Medical Centre Rostock (UMR), University Rostock and related institutions to join the CTNR as a member.

CTNR members benefit from all activities of the CTNR including structured educational programs for young researchers, funding programs, lecture series etc. The membership assembly of the CTNR will have a collective responsibility for its operation.

According to the tentative bylaws of the CTNR, independent research group leaders (Postdocs, Habilitanden/-innen, Priv.-Dozenten/-innen, Professors) with a focus on neuroscience research (as for example indicated by original articles and research grants in the neuroscience field) are eligible to join the CTNR as members.

Membership Application Form

Starting a new collaboration

If you want to develop a new CTNR collaboration, please convey your desire to do so to a member of our CTNR Board who then acts as a bridge between the groups to open an active dialogue.

Furthermore, the CTNR supports the planning of first kick-off meetings of the interested members, where the projects are presented and the collaboration potential can be identified, and concrete next steps established. If you have your own workshop idea, submit a short proposal to the CTNR Board and we will realise it together.

Any specific activity between two or more members of the CTNR in the field of neurosciences is welcome.

Opportunities for Postdoctoral students
