Position: Research Associate
Institution: University College London
Department: Research Department of Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Bianco lab is looking to recruit an active member to work on a research project investigating the neural circuit dynamics underlying visually guided behaviour in larval zebrafish. The project involves design and execution of experiments that combine in vivo functional calcium imaging and behavioural assays and the development and deployment of analytical approaches to process functional imaging data and model underlying neural circuit dynamics. The latter will involve use of modern machine learning techniques, including artificial neural networks
Requirements: The successful candidate will hold a PhD or about to be awarded PhD in field of circuits and/or systems neuroscience, and will have extensive knowledge of neural information processing at the level of single cell and small network computations. Extensive knowledge of cellular and circuit mechanisms underlying slow timescale changes in neural network dynamics, and proven knowledge of research techniques and methodologies relating to study of single cell computations and neural network dynamics are essential for this role
