Scientists at the University of Tübingen study the differential distribution of photoreceptors in the retina of mice
The newly established Andrea Burgalossi laboratory at the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) is looking for PhD and Postdoc candidates.
Our lab investigates the cellular and synaptic basis of behaviour. We employ state-of-the-art methods developed in the Brecht lab (Lee et al., 2009; Burgalossi et al., 2011) to record intracellularly and juxtacellularly from single neurons in freely behaving animals, in combination with anatomical, molecular and optogenetic techniques. We use rodents (mice/rats) as model system, and focus primarily on the mechanisms by which external space is represented in the mammalian cortex.
The successful candidate will explore the circuit structure and synaptic mechanisms involved in spatial cognitive behaviours, and more generally in learning and memory. The candidate will join a team of young and enthusiastic members in the dynamic scientific environment of CIN.
Applications should contain a brief statement of research experience and interests, CV, and names of at least two referees. Please send your application electronically as a single PDF file to andrea.burgalossi(at)bccn-berlin.de.
For applications or informal inquiries please contact Dr. Andrea Burgalossi.
