Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Institute of Ophthalmology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Our group investigates the circuits and computations that lead from vision to recognition, decision, action, and navigation. We rely on a multidisciplinary approach including advanced computational methods, massively parallel neuronal recordings, optogenetics, imaging (widefield, two-photon, and ultrasound), and sensory-driven behavior in virtual environments.The successful candidate will be expected to take a leading role in all aspects of the project, from designing and performing experiments, to data analysis, to the presentation of the results
Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent in neuroscience, engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics, or a similar field, and an ability to work in a diverse group including computational and experimental neurobiologists. Experience with in vivo electrophysiology, imaging, surgery, and behavioral training is desirable, but outstanding candidates who are willing to learn these skills are also invited to apply. Essential requirements are also experience with analyzing data in MATLAB (or possibly Python), and experience of writing scientific manuscripts as evidenced by a solid record of publications
