PhD Studentship in the Institute of Neuroscience – Self-organization of retinal neurons

Value of award 100% of UK/EU tuition fees paid and annual living expenses of £14,296. Successful international candidates will be required to make up the difference between the UK/EU fees and international fees. Number of awards 1 Start date and duration September 2016 for 3 years. Application closing date The post will remain open until a suitable applicant is appointed. Early application is advised. Overview Interested in how neurons develop? This PhD project will explore the development of retinal neurons, by conducting sophisticated computer simulations as well as testing theoretical predictions in the wet-lab. The aim of this project is to formulate a comprehensive computer model of neuronal development in the retina. In additional to computer modeling, the student will conduct wet-lab work to evaluate the predictions of the model, such as the impact of alterations of…
