Applications are invited for a 12 month Masters thesis at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna in the laboratory of Dr David Keays focused on cortical development. The human cortex is arguably the most complex structure on the planet comprised of more than 85 billion neurons, and in excess of 100 trillion synapses. Its formation is dependent on three key cellular processes: (1) the generation of neurons; (2) the migration of neurons; and finally (3) the differential of neurons. This project will focus on the role of vesicular trafficking in neuronal migration and neurodevelopmental diseases. The project will exploit a number of new mouse models that have been generated in the Keays lab that recapitulate human mutations identified by whole exome sequencing.

The successful applicant will gain experience in mouse genetics, molecular biology, cellular assays, and histological techniques. He/she will join a young dynamic team, and is expected to be passionate, hard working, and creative. The start date is flexible and the successful applicant will receive a monthly stipend.

Previous experience in the field of Neuroscience will be advantageous.

Applications with a covering letter and CV should be sent to:



by March 1st 2016. Interviews will follow shortly after this date. The position is open to citizens of all EU member states. For more information visit http://www.keayslab.org.

Programme structure

There are a number of awards which can be granted depending on the number of modules successfully completed. These are:
• Certificate of Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS): awarded on successful completion of one module (30 masters level credits)
• Postgraduate Certificate - Early Childhood Studies: awarded if you decide to conclude your studies on successful completion of two modules (60 masters level credits)
• Postgraduate Diploma - Early Childhood Studies: awarded if you decide to conclude your studies on successful completion of four modules (120 masters-level credits)
• MA Early Childhood Studies: awarded on completion of four modules (120 credits), the research in education module (10 credits) and a dissertation of 15,000–20,000 words (50 credits). A total of 180 masters-level credits is required to receive the award of MA.
You will achieve a named award (PgCert ECS, PgDip ECS, MA ECS) if the focus of your assignments for most of your modules
(and, in the case of the MA ECS, the focus of the dissertation) is on Early Childhood topics.

Programme content

Modules currently available are:
• Concepts of childhood
• Perspectives on early child development
• Developing leadership skills in early childhood settings
• Contemporary issues in the early years
• Independent study module.

Special features

• Flexible modes of study: part time
• Independent study option
• Range of assessment methods
• Dissertation on a topic of your choice in Early Childhood Studies

This is offered via the International Masters Programme (IMP), which allows practitioners the opportunity to study part-time.
