Position: PostDoc
Institution: Universitätsmedizin Göttingen
Department: European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen
Location: Göttingen, Niedersachsen, Germany
Duties: The postdoc to be hired will focus on how acoustic communication signals affect locomotor behavior in males and females with the goal of identifying the neural substrates and computations driving this behavior. Depending on the project, we are going to combine a variety of techniques, including detailed behavioral analyses, in-vivo two photon imaging, and computational modelling
Requirements: PhD in (computational) neuroscience or biology, physics, engineering, computer science or equivalent. Strong motivation to perform neuroscience research. Experience with in vivo imaging or electrophysiology, Drosophila genetics, behavior, computational image analysis, statistics or marching learning are a plus, but not strictly required. For the post doc - a solid track record of scientific publications and conference presentations. Ability to integrate into a team. Good command of the English language
   
Text: Job advertisement from August 4th, 2017 vacancy from: August 4th, 2017 European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen ENI-G is engaged in experimental molecular and cellular research on the central and peripheral nervous systems as well as behavioral and sys-tems neuroscience research. The Neural Computation and Behavior group at ENI-G is seeking a PostDoc 2 years, 100% | Entgelt nach TV-L A postdoc position is available in the lab of Jan Clemens at the European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen, Germany. A major focus of the lab is discovering how sensory information is processed and integrated to drive behavior. In particular, we focus on acoustic communication in Drosophila melanogaster. We use custom, automated, high-throughput behavioral assays in combination with modern systems neuroscience tools, including electrophysiology, optical physiology and optogenetics. The position is funded by the Emmy Noether grant "The neural basis of acoustic communication in Drosophila", which will start in October 2017 and run for five years. The postdoc to be hired will focus on how acoustic communication signals affect locomotor behavior in males and females with the goal of identifying the neural substrates and computations driving this behavior. Depending on the project, we are going to combine a variety of techniques, including detailed behavioral analyses, in-vivo two photon imaging, and computational modelling.
