PhD student positions in systems neuroscience available in the 
laboratory of Vincent Bonin at Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders in 
Leuven, Belgium, (NERF, www.nerf.be) with support from Vlaams Instituut 
voor Biotechnologie (VIB, www.vib.be), imec (www.imec.be) and K.U. 
Leuven (www.kuleuven.be).

Our lab studies the biological mechanisms and network computations that 
underlie visual processing in the mammalian brain. We use large-scale 
electrophysiology, calcium imaging, optogenetics, eye tracking, and 
computational modeling to probe processing in neural populations in the 
visual system of awake, behaving mice. The successful candidates will 
have access to state-of-the-art tools and facilities, a rich training 
environment, and the possibility to collaborate with other groups within 
NERF, VIB, IMEC and K.U. Leuven.

Requirements: You have a university degree in neuroscience, computer 
science, psychology, physics, mathematics or engineering. You have 
significant research experience in systems, cellular or molecular 
neuroscience. You have strong quantitative and technical skills and are 
fluent in at least one programming language (e.g. Matlab, Python, C++). 
You are comfortable working with small animals and performing precise 
procedures such as neurosurgeries. You like to be challenged, and are 
able to work independently, as well as within a team, towards 
established goals.

Students interested in pursuing a project in the lab should send me a 
CV, a copy of their transcripts, and a cover letter stating career 
goals, research interests, and how these relate to our research.
