PhD Position at University of Oldenburg, Germany
The Computational Neuroscience group at University of Oldenburg,
Germany, is seeking for a motivated PhD candidate to study mouse retinal
The project will be focused on the question how visual information is
encoded in the spike activity of retinal ganglion cell ensembles,
comparing wild type and knockout mice. The candidate will perform
behavioral experiments to measure visual thresholds and multi-electrode
recordings of retinal ganglion cell activity in the isolated retina.
Moreover, the project will include data analysis and visual stimulus design.
Experience in electrophysiology, behavioral experiments and / or
computer programming would be beneficial.
The candidate will become a member of the DFG research unit "Dynamics
and stability in retinal processing" and can additionally benefit from
the PhD program "Neurosensory Science and Systems".
The position is offered for a period of three years, starting October
2011 at the earliest time. Reviewing of applications will start on
August 15^th 2011 until the position is filled.
Please send your applications (including letter of motivation, CV,
relevant certificates, contact information of two referees and if
applicable publication list) to
