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).

Maria Robles wins manuscript competition at the HUPO Connect 2020

The 19th Human Proteome Organization World Congress "HUPO Connect 2020" took place on 19-22 October – this year in an online format. Part of the rich scientific program was the Early Career Researcher Manuscript Competition "Proteomics highlight of the year" offering young researchers a platform to present their work. In the finals, three scientists presented their publications and a committee of experts evaluated their talks. Institute of Medical Psychology and BMC scientist Maria Robles was awarded the first prize for her work on circadian rhythms (title of the publication in Science: Sleep-wake cycles drive daily dynamics of synaptic phosphorylation).
