Job ID: 84885
Position: Post-doctoral Position
Deadline: 1 October 2022
Institution: University of Geneva
Department: Basic Neurosciences
The El-Boustani lab at University of Geneva is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to research the cortical circuits underlying social cues encoding during joint decision-making in mice.
This project involves calcium imaging of neuronal populations in freely moving mice during execution of novel behavioral tasks. Optogenetic tools will be used to dissect the circuits that contribute to the performance of these tasks, and state-of-the-art behavioral analysis approaches will help characterized mice interactions. Successful applicants will design a research program focused around understanding how frontal cortical areas contribute to social learning during decision-making.
We welcome applicants with diverse quantitative backgrounds, including, but not limited to neuroscience, mathematics, physics, and engineering. We are especially interested in applicants with excellent programming skills (Matlab, python), experience with mice behavior and recording techniques in freely moving animals. Switzerland offers a vibrant Neuroscience community with outstanding research conditions and attractive salaries.
