The research group Stroh (www.strohlab.com) at the German Resilience Center in Mainz, Germany (DRZ, www.drz-mainz.de) is looking for a PhD student in the field of multimodal assessment of the neurophysiological signature of resilience behavior.

Our group focuses on the novel combination of optical microcircuit imaging with 2-photon-microscopy, optic-fiber-based calcium recordings and fMRI in rodent brain in vivo. We are relating local (dys-) regulated activity of primary cortical areas with brain-wide network dynamics, uncovering causal interdependencies between scales. We provide an interdisciplinary and international team, with a strong focus on translational neuroscience, in a stimulating research environment. The prospective student can become member of the international MD/PhD program “Translational Biomedicine” (please see http://www.unimedizin-mainz.de/transmed/home.html).

The ideal candidate should be a highly motivated individual with a master degree in Biology, Biophysics or related area. Fluency in written and spoken English and an independent but collaborative working style are required too.
