Thu Sep 14 10:15:00 -04 2023

We are looking for a postdoc to study single cell recordings in humans, performed in epileptic patients for curative surgery. The position will be in the recently established group of Prof. Quian Quiroga at the Hospital del Mar Research Institute, in Barcelona (https://www.imim.es<https://www.imim.es/>).

The project will investigate concept cells (a.k.a. Jennifer Aniston neurons) – that means, neurons in the hippocampus and surrounding areas that selectively fire to specific concepts, like different pictures and the written or spoken name of a particular person (e.g. Quian Quiroga et al, Nature 2005; Quian Quiroga, Cell 2019), which are involved in declarative memory functions. For more details see:


The successful candidate will contribute to performing recordings with patients and the analysis / modelling of the data to investigate the role of these neurons in memory. The candidate should have very good quantitative skills (data processing and programing, e.g. in Matlab) and a strong background or interest in neuroscience.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Prof. Rodrigo Quian Quiroga (rquian at imim.es).

To apply see instructions in this link:


Review of applications will start on the 2nd October 2023, and will continue until the position is filled.
