Postdoc position (Research Associate)
We are now looking for an outstanding postdoctoral researcher to join LIM Lab. You’ll work on a project unravelling the neuronal principles that mediate formation and integration of sensory memories and priors, learning statistical regularities and structures, each unfolding over multiple timescales. You will be involved in animal behavioural training, electrophysiological recordings, widefield/2p imaging, neuronal perturbations, and undertaking data analysis and computational modelling. You’ll work collaboratively with colleagues in the lab, as well as across SWC and the Gatsby Unit, and will communicate and present research outcomes and participate in the Centre’s range of events and research activities.
The post is funded for one year in the first instance, but can potentially be extended up to 6 years.
You will have a PhD in Neuroscience or a related field, and independent research experience with a track record of publications and completed research projects. You’ll be experienced with analysing neurophysiological phenomena and in vivo electrophysiology experiments, and prior experience with two-photon imaging or high density electrophysiological recordings would be highly desirable. Strong communication and critical thinking skills, as well as the ability to work collaboratively and effectively within a team are essential.
