MRT/MRS Application Specialist (f/m)

Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN). Magdeburg, 24.07.2017

The Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) is an institute for basic scientific research dedicated to investigating the mechanisms of learning and memory on the molecular, cellular and systems levels. With its broad spectrum of animal and human experimental research approaches and its modern technical facilities, the LIN is one of the cornerstones of Magdeburg as a centre for neurosciences.
For a new 9.4 Tesla small animal magnetic resonance tomograph the LIN is seeking, at the earliest opportunity, a highly motivated
