Description

Adaptation is ubiquitous in the nervous system and underlies efficient sensory codes. However, the biophysical and molecular underpinnings of this important computation are only incompletely understood. In the past, we have described two independent forms of adaptation in the ear of Drosophila melanogaster. In this project, we will combine genetic manipulations, electrophysiology, calcium imaging and computational modelling to identify the mechanisms underlying adaptation in the Drosophila ear.

We are looking for highly motivated applicants with a strong background in neuroscience - ideally with experience in calcium imaging or electrophysiology. Experience in fly genetics or programming skills are of advantage. Moreover, the ability to work in an interdisciplinary (i.e. combining genetic, physiological, and computational approaches) and international research team is an essential prerequisite. This position is supported by a DFG Grant (Collaborative Research Center 889), income is equivalent to E13/65%.
