Opportunities

We are inviting applications for PhD and Postdoc positions.

Projects: State-of-the-art two-photon calcium imaging and two-photon-targeted single cell electrophysiology will be used for circuit analysis in the zebrafish visual system1,2. Imaging experiments will be performed to characterize single cell function and network dynamics during rapid perceptual decision making (’behavioral choice’). Successful applicants will be part of an interdisciplinary team in an interactive and international research environment, addressing structure, function and development of biological neural networks. The rich and diverse neuroscience community at the University of Freiburg will provide ample opportunity for interaction and collaboration (e.g. Freiburg Neuroscience, Bernstein Center Freiburg, Neurex neuroscience network).

Postdoc position
Requirement
An excellent PhD thesis, e.g. in neuroscience or neurobiology, biophysics or biomedical engineering. The candidate should have research experience related to the topic (e.g. electrophysiology/patch clamp recordings, functional calcium imaging/laser scanning microscopy, genetic model organisms). The candidate should have genuine interest in quantitative cellular and systems neuroscience. Practical knowledge in programming (e.g. Matlab, Python, LabView) is desirable.

PhD position
Requirement Diploma or Master degree in a relevant field, e.g. biology, neuroscience, physics, biomedical engineering. The candidate should have practical experience related to the topic (e.g. biomedical optics, electro/-optophysiology) and have a genuine interest in quantitative cellular and systems neuroscience. Practical knowledge in programming (e.g.  Matlab, Python, LabView) is desirable.
