Project Description

The German Research Foundation (DFG)-funded Research Training Group 1885 Molecular Basis of Sensory Biology is offering a Ph.D. position (TV-L E13 65%) m/f/d

"Sensory basis of orientation behavior in fish"

at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg.

We are offering a 3 year - PhD student position in sensory ecology at the Institute of Biology and Environmental Science (IBU, CvO University Oldenburg). The project will be conducted within the framework of the Research Training Group 1885 Molecular Basis of Sensory Biology (https://uol.de/en/sensorybio) and interacts with scientists of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1372 “Navigation Magnetoreception and navigation in vertebrates: from biophysics to brain and behavior” (https://www.sfb1372.de/).

In our group we study sensory basis of orientation behavior in fish in order to unravel mechanisms how animals find their way or search for suitable social or environmental habitat; for example: what are the molecular mechanisms of fish visual or olfactory perception and preferences? The project requires also experience or interest in fish biology.

More information on this position can be obtained from Prof. Dr. Gabriele Gerlach ().

We are looking for a candidate holding a very good academic university degree (Master or equivalent) with experience in molecular methods studying the background of sensory behavior.

Funding Notes

Salary and conditions: The position will be starting as soon as possible for a duration of three years. Salary will be according to TVL E13 (65%).
