[Comp-neuro] Position for a Senior Postdoctoral Neuroscientist

Invitation for applications:

A postdoctoral position for neurophysiology and optogenetics is available at the Department of Developmental Neurophysiology, University Medical Center Hamburg, Germany.


Our group investigates the synchronized patterns of electrical activity in the immature brain, their relevance for the development of cognitive and behavioral abilities and their impairment associated with neurological disorders, such as perinatal ischemia and schizophrenia (www.zmnh.uni-hamburg.de/zmnh/groups/hanganu/hanganu).


We seek a Senior Postdoctoral Neuroscientist to develop, execute and analyze state-of-the-art electrophysiological, optogenetic, anatomical and behavioral experiments in rodents as part of a research project aiming to elucidate the neuronal circuitry accounting for the maturation of cognitive and multisensory abilities. The position offers an excellent opportunity to perform highly collaborative research within the DFG-funded Priority Program 1665 and Collaborative Research Center 936.


Qualified candidates should hold a Ph.D, M.D. or equivalent qualification, and should have outstanding   certificates and good publication record. Candidates are also expected to have significant experience in   electrophysiology and optogenetics as well as strong background in mathematics with good programming   experience (MATLAB). Good communication skills, creative and independent thinking are mandatory.

The salary will be on the level of the German public service research salary (E13-14, 40.000-45.000 € per annum, depending on experience).
