Forschungsförderung für Chronobiologin Maria Robles/Research funding for chronobiologist Maria Robles

Chronobiologist and Acting Chair of the Institute of Medical Psychology at LMU, Professor Maria Robles has been successful in obtaining funding from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI). Its "Collaborative Pairs Pilot Project Award" supports research duos in innovative and interdisciplinary projects in the field of neurodegenerative diseases and basic neurological research.
Prof. Robles is thus 1 of only 3 German scientists and 64 scientists worldwide, we are very happy for her !

For their joint project with colleagues from the Faculty of Biology, Prof. Dr. medical Bärbel Otto and Mr. Alexander Benz (Medical Faculty) were awarded one of the five teaching innovation prizes of the LMU. Find out more (German language)


Postdoc Position
Sleep and Circadian-Driven Nuclear Multi-Omics Dynamics

We are looking for a highly motivated and talented postdoc to join the Robles group, Systems Chronobiology, at the LMU Munich, Germany. We have an open position funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Neurodegeneration Challenge Network (NCDN) within a collaborative project together with Angel Barco’s laboratory (Neuroscience Institute, Alicante, Spain). The overarching aim of the project is to characterize circadian and sleep-driven nuclear multi-omics dynamics in diverse mouse brain cells using high-end RNAseq and proteomics technology.
The Robles group employs a wide range of mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics methods to study, in health and diseases, circadian and sleep-driven molecular mechanisms (click here to learn more about the group more

Postdoc Position in Proteomics of Sleep

A postdoc position is currently available in the research group of Maria Robles, Systems Chronobiology, in LMU Munich, Germany. The position is associated with an SNSF-funded SINERGIA collaborative project together with the Adamantidis laboratory. This multidisciplinary project aims to identify molecular markers of brain activity during sleep using a range of neurophysiological techniques (Adamantidis) and mass spectrometry (MS)- based quantitative proteomics (Robles) (see doi:10.1126/science.aav2642; doi:10.1126/science.aav3617).
