We are interested in recruiting Students and Postdocs with diverse research backgrounds to our group. Candidates with expertise and interest in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, and neuroscience are encouraged to felix.nitschke@utsouthwestern.edu.

Our lab works with murine disease models and employs Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology to investigate brain glycogen metabolism and related neurodegenerative diseases. We are advancing mechanistic understanding of the diseases and are probing appropriate therapeutic strategies to treat them. In a highly collaborative effort our lab is developing novel approaches that push the boundaries of state-of-the-art Gene Therapy.

UT Southwestern is one of the premier research Universities in the US. We foster a highly collaborative environment and thus the successful candidate will interact with a diverse group of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.
