项目介绍

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

Objectives:

  • Characterize the retinal output of different mouse models of retinal diseases
  • Correlate the retinal output to the animal behavior in the water maze

Expected Results:

  • Definition of the limit in ganglion cell output to trigger visual perception
  • Conclusions for expected visual perception during visual restoration based on the restored retinal output

Host institution: Aalto University (Aalto, Finland) – Supervisor: Petri Ala-Laurila

Aalto University (Aalto) is the largest technology-oriented university in Finland. The Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering is located in the Otaniemi campus – one of the most important north-european technology hubs, with a high concentration of companies, and research institutes from the high-technology sector, and with a thriving culture of entrepreneurship.

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 behavioural measurements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZniIYFSIcT8

Requirements from the applicant:

  • Highly motivated, previous experience on behavioral experiments and/or electrophysiology is a plus
  • Formal requirements for eligibility: at the time of appointment, applicant must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Finland for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
