[Comp-neuro] PostDoc Position in Systems Neuroscience (Tuebingen, Germany)

I would appreciate it if you could post this annoucement on an appropriate notice board or bring this position to the attention of potential candidates.

Laboratory “Physiology of Cortico-Hippocampal Interactions”  at the Center for Integrative Neurosciences (CIN) at the University of Tuebingen (Germany) is looking for a highly motivated and bright PostDoc  candidate.


Our group is part of the interdisciplinary scientific environment ( Research in the lab is focused on the mechanisms of learning and memory. Specifically, we are exploring the mechanisms of information transfer within and between the neocortex and hippocampus. Our approach employs state-of-the-art multichannel extracellular recording in freely moving rodents, quantitative behavior analysis, optogenetic and electrical perturbation and advanced signal processing and data mining.


Applicant will be directly responsible for the project within the DFG funded Priority program 1392 "Integrative analysis of olfaction". Project is aimed at detailed analysis of the processing in the single olfactory bulb module in vivo using multichannel silicon probe recordings, optogentic stimulation, fiberoptic fluorescence measurement and behavioral paradigms in transgenic mice. 

Background in biology/physiology and/or physics/engineering is required. Experience in in vivo physiology (electrophysiology or optical imaging) is highly desirable. Experience in the field of olfaction is a plus.

Applications should include a CV, a brief statement of research experience and interests, academic achievements and names of at least 2 referees. Please, send your application electronically as a single .pdf file to Dr Anton Sirota (
