We are looking for an excellent PhD Candidate to work in characterization of healthy and diseased mouse models from retinal circuits to visually guided behaviour
Timeline of the call:
The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found. Thus, submit your application as soon as possible. In any case we will fill the position by the spring of the year 2023.
Characterize the retinal output of different mouse models of retinal diseases
Correlate the retinal output to the animal behavior in the water maze
Host institution: Aalto University (Aalto, Finland) – Supervisor: Petri Ala-Laurila
Dr Ala-Laurila has two laboratories (http://ala-laurila.biosci.helsinki.fi/): one at Aalto University and one at University of Helsinki. Both labs work in integrated collaboration and have state-of-the art approaches to study retinal circuits and visually-guided behavior. They combine cutting-edge electrophysiological recording techniques with precise manipulations of retinal circuit function, mathematical modelling and quantitative behavioral measurements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZniIYFSIcT8
