Group Leader

Constanze Lenschow is an Associate Professor at the Institute for Biology at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg. She is (Neuro)-Biologist by training and did her PhD with Michael Brecht at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Berlin and her post-doctoral work in the laboratory of Susana Lima at the Champalimaud Institute for the Unknown in Lisbon.


Postdoctoral Fellows

If you are fascinated by social and natural behavior and want to unravel their underlying neural circuit mechanisms during your Postdoc, get in touch with Constanze by sending a brief letter with your main reseach interests, along with your CV. You are also encouraged to develop your own research ideas together with Constanze and apply for independent funding via EMBO, HFSP, the Marie Curie Program or other opportunities in your home country (such as the DFG here in Germany).

A background in systems neuroscience with strong skills in quantitative approaches and programming skills are advantagoues but not a must.

PhD students

We welcome applications from highly motivated students coming from various backgrounds (Biology, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Biomedecine ...). If you are fascinated by systems neuroscience approaches to investigate natural social behaviours, please contact Constanze! Quantitative analysis and programming skills are a bonus.

MSc projects
