PhD position in Neuroscience: Investigation of the functional integration of hiPSC derived photoreceptors in blind retinae

The Neurophysics Lab at the Natural and Medical Sciences Institute has an opening for a PhD position in Neuroscience / Retinal Neurophysiology. Successful candidates will employ state-of-the-art microelectrode arrays to investigate the functional integration of human ipSC derived neurons in the retina. The PhD project is based on our recent work: (i.e. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25183393 ) The focus of the Neurophysics Lab is the functional evaluation of neural circuits upon neurostimulation /transplantation with the aim to develop new restoration strategies in degenerating retinal diseases. Prior experiences in electrophysiology as well as interest in computational neuroscience are desired. Salary and benefits will be in accordance with the regulations of the german TVL regulations. The PhD student will benefit from a structured training platform provided by the Tübingen Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience (http://neuroschool-tuebingen.de). PhD position in Neuroscience: Investigation of the functional integration of hiPSC derived photoreceptors in blind retinae Keywords • Extracellular recording using micro-electrode arrays (MEAs) • Functional analysis of the integration of hiPSC derived neurons • Interest in data analysis The PhD project is embedded in the BMBF-funded consortium ReSight with partners from the CRT Dresden, Miltenyi Biotec and Fraunhofer IBMT
