Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Division of Biosciences - Research Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to join the Bianco lab in the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology. Isaac Bianco’s research group is interested in how brain-wide circuits control visually guided behaviours. The lab focusses on how circuits integrate sensory and internal state information to select behavioural programmes and how sequences of motor actions are flexibly selected and tuned to accomplish behavioural goals. To examine the structure and operational principles of sensorimotor circuits, the lab uses a variety of approaches including functional calcium imaging, naturalistic behavioural assays, optogenetics, circuit tracing and computational modelling
Requirements: PhD (or be studying towards it) in biology, neuroscience, engineering or another relevant subject area and proven knowledge of modern research methods applicable to systems neuroscience
