About the Project
In this project, you will be able to use state-of-the-art techniques including advanced microscopy, deep learning-assisted image analysis, electron microscopy-based circuit reconstruction and quantitative analysis. You will image the patterns of activity across the brain using calcium and voltage sensors as the animal engages in different behaviours; explore the neural circuitry involved in these different behaviours by reconstructions from electron microscopy data, including those neurons descending from the brain; image the activity of cell types of interest using calcium sensors; and assess the behavioural importance of these cells by manipulating their activity using optogenetics in combination with AI-assisted behavioural tracking. Your project will provide fundamental insights into the workings of the Drosophila motor system, with implications for our understanding of the neuronal basis of motor control in nervous systems across the animal kingdom.
As part of your online application please upload the EASTBIO Application Form, academic transcripts, and ensure two references (using the EASTBIO reference form) are provided by the deadline.
