JOB DESCRIPTION

PhD Position in Molecular Mechanisms and Therapies of Retinal Diseases

The Institute of Molecular and Clinical Ophthalmology Basel (IOB) is seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to join the group investigating visual circuits: structure, functions, and repair within the Molecular Research Center.

The PhD candidate will study molecular processes driving retinal cell types and their dysfunction in genetic diseases. Using genetic and molecular approaches combined with biochemical analyses, cell imaging, and cell function readouts, she/he will investigate retinal disease-related pathomechanisms and therapy strategies in animal models, retina cultures, and human retinal organoids. The PhD projects will involve generation retina disease models, molecular analyses of RNA-protein and protein-protein interactions, and developing gene and cell therapy approaches for vision loss.

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.



Your profile
The successful candidate should be highly motivated to contribute to our efforts to understand the vision, its diseases, and developing therapy strategies. She/he should have a Master degree and solid background in molecular biology or biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology. Prior experience in retinal biology is a plus. We expect excellent communication and organization skills, and the ability to work as a team member. The international environment of the IOB requires good spoken and written English.

We offer you
We offer a research position in an international, interdisciplinary research environment. Salary and social benefits are provided according to the IOB and the University of Basel regulations. IOB is an equal-opportunity employer with family-friendly work policies.

Application / Contact
Interested candidates should submit their application documents as a single PDF file to jobs@iob.ch. Please indicate the position you are applying for by writing the reference number (IOB013) on the subject line.
