Position: Research Associate (International Brain Laboratory)
Institution: University College London
Department: Sainsbury Wellcome Centre
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: IBL Research Associates work collaboratively to define and standardise the behavioural task, refine the training of mice, measure behavioural performance, and record the activity of large populations of neurons during behaviour using Neuropixels probes and two-photon imaging. You will be able to collaborate with IBL colleagues located in 21 labs across 5 countries
Requirements: You will have a PhD in Neuroscience or a related field, and independent research experience with a track record of publications and completed research projects. You’ll have good knowledge of neurobiology and sufficient expertise in Matlab or Python to be able to analyse experimental data and write routine to control experimental setups. Experience with behavioural neuroscience techniques, electrophysiology and imaging in vivo, and surgical techniques are highly desirable. The ability to work collaboratively as part of a multidisciplinary and international team including computational and experimental neurosciences is essential

Developed through the vision and partnership of the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and Wellcome, and with substantial investment from these partners, the mission of the SWC is to generate and test experimentally tractable theories of brain function. The Hofer and Mrsic-Flogel labs at SWC are part of the International Brain Laboratory (IBL) . The IBL aims to establish the neural basis of decision-making by developing a standardised mouse decision-making behaviour task, making coordinated measurements of neural activity across the mouse brain, and using theory and analysis to uncover the underlying neural computations. IBL Research Associates work collaboratively to define and standardise the behavioural task, refine the training of mice, measure behavioural performance, and record the activity of large populations of neurons during behaviour using Neuropixels probes and two-photon imaging. You will be able to collaborate with IBL colleagues located in 21 labs across 5 countries. For more information about the advantages of postdoctoral research at IBL, see www.internationalbrainlab.com/postdocs/ . The post is funded for two years in the first instance. Key Requirements You will have a PhD in Neuroscience or a related field, and independent research experience with a track record of publications and completed research projects. You?ll have good knowledge of neurobiology and sufficient expertise in Matlab or Python to be able to analyse experimental data and write routine to control experimental setups.
