Research assistant (m/f/d) with 65%- part-time job limited to 30.06.2024 Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU reference code: WiMi_vonKleist_2021_Interaktionsdynamik_0421901104
In the framework of the DFG project "Neuronal Interaction Dynamics During Neural Circuit Assembly", we are looking for a dedicated researcher working on the modeling of neuronal growth and wiring processes during brain development. In particular, the candidate will analyze time-resolved 2-photon microscopy data, derive parameters into stochastic neuronal growth models. For this purpose, run-time optimized computer programs shall be further developed to simulate the neuronal growth processes. The successful candidate will be expected to make a theoretical and applied contribution to the above problem and to publish the results in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences. The opportunity for doctoral studies is given.
