Ph.D. position: Study of neural plasticity and cortical reorganization following visual system injury

A graduate student position has opened up at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tuebingen, Germany. The project in question focuses on the study of neural plasticity and cortical reorganization following visual system injury. State of the art functional magnetic resonance imaging methods will be used to study a cohort of carefully selected patients with lesions of the visual pathway.  The opportunity exists to run a parallel comparative study in non-human primates.  This project is under the joint supervision of Drs Nikos K. Logothetis (MPI for Biological Cybernetics) and Stelios Smirnakis (Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, USA).

    Dear Dr Smirnakis

    While reviewing your university website I came across your research on the Biological Cybernetics and your research Assistant position within this study. I was immediately drawn to your topics of interest as well as the specific Articles that you have recently published. As a Molecular and Cell Biology concentrator focusing on this specific area, I would Very much like to be considered for this position.

    During my MSc thesis I have worked on a molecule so called NGAL. The precise role of NGAL has not been fully known so Far. It has been implicated in cancer and as a bacterial growth Inhibitor. I expressed NGAL in insect cell line by using Baculovirus expression system.
    My Biology coursework has centered on conservation as highlighted on my resume. This Academic background has also prepared me for field research. I have taken multiple Physiology and Biotechnology and Human genetics classes which have enabled me to improve my research skills as well as my analytical abilities, I am Confident that I could make a Strong Contribution to your research department.

    Thank you for your consideration of my credentials
