Postdoctoral Research Associate Vacancy

03/09/19

The successful applicants will pursue a research project with the goal of understanding how brain-wide neural circuits lead to flexible cognitive behaviours in mice. The techniques employed will include chronic in-vivo two photon calcium imaging of multiple cell classes, targeted optogenetic manipulations, viral vector based functional circuit mapping, and quantitative mouse behaviour. The successful applicant will benefit from the collaborative culture of the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology at King's College London and will have the opportunity to develop collaborations with groups studying animal models of brain disorders. Candidates must have a strong research track record. Experience with in-vivo two photon imaging, rodent behaviour and analysis of complex datasets will be highly valued. Candidates with programming skills are encouraged to apply.
