a PhD position at the physiology and pathophysiology of retina group, Paul Flechsig Institute for Brain Research

Application is sought for a Ph.D. position for a project at physiology and pathophysiology of retina group, Paul Flechsig Institute for Brain Research, University of Leipzig headed by Prof. Thomas Arendt.

Pre-processing of input visual information begins in the retina where the visual information is captured by rod and cone photoreceptors in the outer retina and then integrated and processed the electrical signals by interneurons e.g. Amacrine, bipolar, horizontal cells, and transmitted to the brain by retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in the inner retina. Worldwide over 8 million people suffer from retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration, which lead to loss of photoreceptor function and blindness. The main goal of the project will be to investigate ‘'a platform for therapies of the future: Advancing retinal organoids and retinal cell differntaited from stem cells for transplantation to degenerative retinal cells'' by state-of-the-art electrophysiology technologies, including microelectrode array, and single electrode patch clamp recordings.For that project, We are offering 2+1 years PhD position at Leipzig University

What we are looking for a pre-doc candidate for the position

• with an excellent academic record
• has experimental skills ideally in functional imaging, alternatively in electrophysiology
• has a strong background in biology ideally in neuroscience
• is experienced in data analysis.

How to apply:

Applications should include a CV, a statement of research motivation, master‘s degree and the recommendation letter. Please send the documents to (PD Dr. Zohreh Hosseinzadeh) or (Ms. Ellen Morawski-Gangloff) till 10.02.2020.
