Dear all,

I have a new Ph.D. position in System Neuroscience at the University of Göttingen and the German Primate Center in Göttingen.

We will use a new paradigm in studying neural correlates of decision-making in monkeys: The animals in our study will make decisions that are more natural to them, less repetitive, and require less training. Also, we will use chronic electrophysiology enabling us to simultaneously probe many neurons using a technology that is more or less plug-and-play. That means less animal training and less neuron-fishing.

However, because there is nothing like a free lunch, this comes with a cost: Analyzing the data will be way more complicated, compared to a classical experiment! Therefore, the ideal candidate is proficient in data analysis and coding, but also enthusiastic to work with monkeys (Do you enjoy teaching your pet a trick or two? then you will also enjoy working with our monkeys). Please find more information here:


and please feel free to spread the word.

Kind Regards
