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 (www.ucl.ac.uk/cortexlab). 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
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, functional imaging, 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 large data sets in MATLAB or Python, and experience in writing scientific manuscripts as evidenced by a solid record of publications

Matteo Carandini and Kenneth Harris. The successful applicant will study the activity of large populations of neurons in the brain of behaving mice. Our group investigates the circuits and computations that lead from vision to recognition, decision, action, and navigation (www.ucl.ac.uk/cortexlab). 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. The position is funded for two years in the first instance. Key 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.
