The laboratory of Jan Gründemann at the Department of Biomedicine in Basel is searching for a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist to study neural circuit mechanisms of sensory integration upon learning and memory formation. We use a multitude of state of the art circuit neuroscience as well as single and two-photon imaging techniques to reveal how sensory integration in deep brain areas affects learning and behaviour. Candidates with a strong background in in vivo electrophysiology, imaging or computational neuroscience are encouraged to apply. The position will start January 2018 and is funded for at least 4 years. Salaries are according to the guidelines of the Swiss National Science Foundation (100 %).
Applications should include a cover letter, brief summary of previous research, CV and references.
