Post-doctoral position available in Erlangen.

The laboratory for retinal physiology seeks a Postdoctoral Scholar to work with Dr. Cord Huchzermeyer on projects in optimizing outcome parameters of photoreceptor- and post-receptoral-specific function for clinical trials in patients with inherited retinal diseases
