Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher (PhD) position is available in 
Vienna at TU Wien.
Title: Simulation of the synaptic exocytosis of bipolar cells in the 
electrically stimulated retina.

The position is funded by the European Commission in the framework 
of  the H2020 Marie Sk?odowska Curie Initial Training Network 
'switchBoard'. The switchBoard project aims at training 15 young 
scientists at the interface of neurobiology, information 
processing  and neurotechnology, with focus on synaptic physiology, 
transgenic technology, models of retinal degeneration, method 
development and the application of retinal circuit principles for 
signal processing in artificial vision chips.

The proposed project aims to develop a model that predicts glutamate 
release from ON and OFF bipolar cells evoked by electrical 
stimulation by an electrode array, as used in current retinal implants.
