About This PhD Project

Project Description

The Institute of Molecular and Clinical Ophthalmology Basel (IOB) is seeking highly motivated PhD students to join the Genetics Group (Prof. Rivolta – University of Basel).

IOB is a research institute combining basic and clinical research. Its mission is to drive innovations in understanding vision and its diseases and develop new therapies for vision loss. It is a place where your expertise will be valued, your abilities challenged, and your knowledge expanded.

The Genetics group is involved in forefront research on hereditary blindness, by applying both a computational and an experimental approach to the analysis of raw genome data. Our main goal is the identification of DNA mutations that lead to visual loss and the study of the molecular mechanisms that are impaired by such mutations.
