PhD Position – Chemical Optogenetics and Synthetic Neuroscience
Project: The Trauner Laboratory is interested in restoring vision in blind people using nanoscale molecular prostheses. These are attached covalently or non covalently to the molecular machinery that underlies synaptic activity, i.e. the ion channels and GPCRs that drive sensory perception.
Requirements: The ideal candidate has some background in synthetic chemistry and/or electrophysiology and is excited about working at interface of chemistry, optics, electronics, cell biology and neuroscience.
