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
