*PhD Positions for Students with Neurobiology Background or
Engineering/Data-analysis Background for Neural Network Research Using
High-density Microelectrode Arrays*

We are currently seeking PhD students with a neurobiology background, or
with an engineering/data analysis background, who will conduct
electrophysiological experiments with high-density microelectrode arrays.
The students will investigate how information is processed by neuronal
networks and by the corresponding individual neurons and subcellular units
within active networks.

Suitable candidates should either have a background in
neurobiology/neuroscience, or interest in evaluating large-scale complex
data sets and a background in engineering or computer science. The
candidate should be interested in interdisciplinary collaborative work in
the area of electronics/neurobiology/data processing. Programming skills
(for example Matlab, Python, R, etc.) are required, and knowledge of
mathematics, statistics and data analysis methods, or experience in cell
culturing and sterile techniques, or - possibly - patch clamp will be an
