Post doctoral research position in Systems Neuroscience (# of pos: 2)

Updated: 4 months ago
Deadline: 16 Oct 2019

We have a postdoctoral position available from 1st Jan 2020 for 4 years. Candidates with a background in experimental or computational neuroscience are encouraged to apply. The project will involve a mixture of experimental work (state of the art in vivo two-photon calcium imaging in awake behaving mice) and data analysis (preferably in the Matlab programming environment). The precise aims of the project are somewhat flexible and will be decided in discussion with the candidate but should be loosely aligned with the interests of the lab (https://www.ransonlab.net/research-topics ). The role also involves a teaching commitment which will be adjusted to the areas of knowledge of the candidate and so the position would particularly suit an individual seeking both teaching and research experience. Experimental work will be carried out at the PI's lab in the Institute of Neuroscience at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (https://inc.uab.cat/en ) and teaching at the Sant Cugat campus of the International University of Cataluña (https://www.uic.es/en ).

Desirable characteristics/experience

  • Performing in vivo recordings of neurons, particularly using 2-photon microscopy and genetically encoded calcium indicators
  • Data analysis in Matlab
  • Fluency in English

Salary: 27.273€
