Post-Doctoral Fellow Neuroimmunology

Type
Research
Description
You will, together with a PhD student, identify targets promoting remyelination in human post mortem MS brain tissue and validate these targets in vitro. In addition, you will be involved in the immunohistochemical analyses of effects of targets tested in animal models for MS. Development of non-invasive viral vectors to deliver the targets to the CNS and evaluation of the effects in animal models, will be done by an additional postdoctoral fellow, PhD student and technician of the Start2Cure team “Regenerative Gene Therapy for MS”.
FTE
38 hours
Period
2 years with additional 2 years

Internship: Imaging visual processing

Type
Internship
Description
Visual information that enters our eyes is immediately relayed to the brain. From there on, it is processed extensively. Our lab uses fMRI and psychophysics to increase our understanding of the visual system, for example using the population receptive field (pRF) method (Dumoulin & Wandell, 2008).

Post-doctoral researcher visual brain prosthesis

Type
Research
Description
A postdoc position is available in the Vision & Cognition group at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience in Amsterdam. The aim is to understand visual perception and plasticity elicited by electrical stimulation of the visual cortex in mice, with the ultimate aim to create a visual cortical prosthesis to restore a rudimentary form of vision for the blind.
