We are looking for a talented student with a proactive and self-driven
nature who will map functional characteristics of retinal ganglion cells
across the entire retina. The successful candidate will perform experiments
with ex-vivo retinae and state-of-the-art microelectrode array technology
in an interdisciplinary research project and will collaborate with
scientists in electrical engineering, neurobiology, computational
neuroscience and ophthalmic research.

The PhD project is set in an interdisciplinary research group providing an
exciting scientific environment and linked with several ongoing projects.
It will pave the way to a better functional understanding of the
organization of retina, including the optics of the eye and the statistics
of natural stimuli. In particular, we want to understand if functional
properties of retinal ganglion cells follow a spatial organization across
the entire retina.

The ideal candidate will have strong programming skills (e.g., Matlab,
Python, C++), knowledge of statistics and data analysis methods, and a
background in Systems Neuroscience, Electrophysiology, Computational
Neuroscience, Signal Processing, Optics or related fields.

Inquiries should be addressed to Dr. Felix Franke (felix.franke at ethz.ch).
The position is with the Bio Engineering Laboratory of ETH Zurich in Basel
in the group of Prof. Andreas Hierlemann (https://www.bsse.ethz.ch/bel) and
begins in March 2017 although the starting date is flexible. The position
is fully funded for 4 years.

Please apply under https://apply.refline.ch/845721/5083/pub/1/index.html
including a CV, short statement of motivation and research interests, and
two letters of reference.
