A postdoc position is available in Laura Busse’s group at the Division of Neurobiology, Department of Biology of the LMU Munich (http://www.neuro.bio.lmu.de/members/system_neuro_busse/busse_l/index.html <http://www.neuro.bio.lmu.de/members/system_neuro_busse/busse_l/index.html>). We study the neural circuits of visual perception in awake, behaving mice, where we combine electrophysiological recordings using cutting edge multi-electrode recordings techniques with genetic tools for circuit manipulation. The Department of Biology at the LMU Munich offers an outstanding environment for a successful postdoctoral career in systems neuroscience, with ample opportunities for collaboration with both experimentalists and computational neuroscientists. The LMU Munich ranks among the top 10 universities in Europe. Munich, located in the south of Germany, is regularly ranked among the world’s top cities for quality of living.
The postdoc position is part of the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center Assembly and Function of Neuronal Circuits (http://www.sfb870.mcn.uni-muenchen.de/index.html <http://www.sfb870.mcn.uni-muenchen.de/index.html>), and will be offered for 4 years. The successful candidate will collaborate on state-dependent response modulations within the thalamo-cortico-thalamic loop in the mouse visual system. The project builds on our previous work published in Erisken et al. (2014) Current Biology, and will combine genetic circuit manipulations with extracellular recordings in mouse V1 and dLGN. The candidate must have a PhD in neuroscience, or a related field, and a strong research record including publications. The ideal candidate will have experience in electrophysiology / imaging in awake mice and in genetic tools for circuit manipulation. Proficiency in programming (e.g. Python) and experience in signal processing are necessary. Applications will be considered until the position is filled, and should contain a statement about research experience and career goals, a CV and names of 2 referees. Please send your application as a single pdf via email to busse at bio.lmu.de <mailto:busse at bio.lmu.de>
