The project addresses the physiological underpinning of neural network dysfunction in terms of dynamics and information processing in early onset neurological diseases. The successful candidate will combine theoretical approaches with experimental in vivo recordings and with in vitro preparations derived from monogenetic neurological disorders. The study will be backed up by manipulation of classical in vitro networks. Our aim is to gain a mechanistic understanding of disease induced network dysfunction, which allows to understand disease pathophysiology and to develop treatment approaches.
Job Offer from August 02, 2016
The candidate should have
- a Master in theoretical or experimental neuroscience, or related disciplines (e. g. physics, biology, computer science, engineering, mathematics, medicine),
- a strong interest to cross disciplinary boundaries in order to gain a quantitative understanding of neurons and networks in health and disease,
- English speaking and writing skills. German speaking skills are not required.
- Inquiries should be addressed to Dr. Andreas Neef (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dr. Viola Priesemann (email@example.com) or Dr. Hendrik Rosewich (firstname.lastname@example.org).
