Job ID: 98433
Postdoc position in behavioral neuroscience
Position: Post-doctoral Position
Deadline: 22 December 2022
Contract Length: 3 years
Institution: University Medical Center Mainz
Department: Institute of Pathophysiology
The working group for Behavioral Neurophysiology at the Institute of Pathophysiology, University Medical Center Mainz, Germany, is inviting applications for the position of a
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN BEHAVIORAL NEUROSCIENCE
The main research interests of the lab revolve around the neural mechanisms underlying perceptual decisions, with a particular focus on sensory and prefrontal cortices. We use methods ranging from behavioral experiments (psychophysics and reward-based learning) to in vivo multi-electrode recordings, pharmacology, and optogenetic manipulation of defined neural cell types. Please see https://bit.ly/2rV4y1D for more information on our work.
We seek a highly motivated and qualified candidate with a strong background in neuroscience or related fields. Experience with rodent behavior experiments and/or neurophysiological methods is required; basic programming skills (e.g., in Matlab) are of advantage.
The successful candidate will become part of the vibrant neuroscience community within the Focus Program Translational Neuroscience (www.ftn.uni-mainz.de) and the Rhine-Main-Neuroscience network (www.rmn2.de). The position entails teaching obligations in human physiology at the Medical Faculty (4 hours per semester week); accordingly, a good command of written and spoken German is required.
Salary will be according to German TV-L E 13 (initially limited to 3 years with the possibility of extension). The position is available immediately; applications will be considered until the position is filled.
Applications should include a cover letter with a brief statement of research interests, a short CV with names of two referees, and grade transcripts. For applications or informal inquiries please contact Prof. Maik Stüttgen (email@example.com).
