If you are highly motivated and have a sound background in electrophysiology (e.g., patch-clamp recordings), you are encouraged to apply. Basic programming skills (e.g., Matlab) and/or experience with modern light microscopy techniques (confocal or two-photon microscopy) would be an asset.
Funding of the position is available for at least three years within the DFG Research Unit “Dynamics and stability of retinal processing” (FOR 701, www.fg-retina.uni-oldenburg.de/en/), which also provides opportunities to meet with other retinal neuroscientists.
