Participate in the TPU

We constantly seek to enlarge our team and expand the research focus. If you are interested in collaborating or joining our TPU feel free to contact us!

The Translational Psychiatry Unit (TPU) at the University zu Lübeck is embedded in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, the Center of Brain, Behavior and Metabolism (CBBM) and the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH).

We have different fields of interest sharing a vision to understand how the mind and the brain work and to use this understanding to improve quality of life and clinical outcomes of patients with mental health issues. I am pleased to invite you to our webpages to see for yourself examples of the innovative research that makes the TPU an exciting place to work and learn.

In order to strengthen our TPU team we are looking for interested academics with backgrounds in medicine, psychology, clinical neuroscience, computational modeling or related fields. If you are interested, please contact us.
