Job ID: 99645
PhD position in auditory neuroscience
Position: Ph.D. Student
Deadline: 23 January 2023
Contract Length: 4 years
Institution: Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam
A four-year PhD position is available at the Department of Neuroscience of Erasmus MC in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) to work on the cellular and network neuronal mechanisms underlying tinnitus.
The aim is identify the neurons in the mouse inferior colliculus that show increased firing following sound overexposure, to characterize the changes in their cellular properties, and to test their relevance to tinnitus using operant conditioning.
Enthusiastic and motivated candidates with an MSc in Neuroscience or related fields are invited to apply. Experience with in vivo electrophysiology, in vivo two-photon imaging, optogenetics, or operant conditioning is welcome.
More information about the project can be obtained from Gerard Borst. Information about the research at the Department of Neuroscience can be obtained at https://neuro.nl/research, and about the lab at https://neuro.nl/research/borst.
You will become a member of the ONWAR graduate school (https://www.onwar.nl).
How to apply
Applicants should send a letter of application, highlighting their research interests, relevant training and experience, together with their CV and the contact details of at least two references before 23-1-2023 to Gerard Borst by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
