This will be done using a project based learning approach where participants will build a FlyPi - an open source all in one biology lab that can be used for microscopy (optical and fluorescent), optogenetics, thermogenetics and behavioural tracking. More details on the publication describing the device: https://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.2002702
Participants are asked to apply in pairs from the same institution/organization or in the same city as they will take their built FlyPi back with them.
- One complete Flypi per group (to be built during the workshop)- Breakfast- Accommodation (bed in a hostel room)- Coffee Breaks- Evening meal- Tickets for the public transport in Berlin for the duration of the workshop.
Please note that other meals will not be covered! Also, we are not able to cover transport to/from Berlin. Selected participants are expected to be present for the entire duration of the workshop.
2) Bachelor's degree or higher in biological, medical and related sciences will be considered, up to and including professorial level/head of department. Pairs may be freely composed across these levels. Seniority is not a selection criterion.
3) Each individual candidate may only feature in one application.
4) Applicants need to send one PDF file containing a one page CV of each participant, plus a one page motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org (see details on section 4)
