Description

PhD candidate in cilia biology and neuroscience:

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to join the Jurisch-Yaksi group at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway.

The main goal of the PhD project will be to unravel the function of motile-cilia-generated fluid flow in the nervous system using zebrafish as model system. The PhD student will use a wide range of microscopy, computational, fluid dynamics and biophysical approaches to characterize ciliary beating, fluid flow and neuronal activity in vivo and in brain explants. In addition, the candidate will use genetic, optogenetic and pharmacological approaches to monitor and manipulate ciliary beating in vivo and identify the consequences of impaired ciliary beating on brain function.
