[Comp-neuro] PhD Positions! NEUROPHYSIOLOGY and BEHAVIOUR


The lab of Andrea Burgalossi at the Werner Reichardt Centre for
Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) in Tübingen is looking for bright PhD
candidates in the field of

Neurophysiology and Behaviour

Our research is focused on determining the neural basis of behaviour.
To this end, we employ state-of-the-art methods for obtaining
whole-cell recordings from single neurons in freely-behaving rodents
(Lee et al., 2009; Burgalossi et al., 2011), in combination with
anatomical, molecular and optogenetic techniques.

The successful candidate will have access to a broad spectrum of
neurophysiology and neuroananatomy methods, and will contribute to the
development of computational tools for the analysis of
electrophysiological and behavioural data. Candidates with
quantitative background (i.e. Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science,
Engineering) and computational/programming skills are particularly
encouraged to apply.

Applications should contain a CV and names of at least two referees.
Please send your application electronically to
