Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology - Department of Neuromuscular Diseases
Workload: 100%
Duties: Neurons all over the brain correlate with performance of behavioural tasks. However, such correlations do not always indicate that this neural activity is necessary for task performance. Finding the brain regions that causally contribute to behavioral tasks requires perturbation of the underlying circuits. Recently developed optogenetic sensors have sufficient light sensitivity to allow this to be done non-invasively, even for deep brain structures. We are seeking a postdoctoral scientist to systematically investigate the causal importance of activity throughout the brain, using new, highly sensitive optogenetic sensors. The appointee will develop and deploy novel optogenetic techniques to study the brain-wide mechanisms of decision tasks
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD or equivalent in Neuroscience, Molecular Biology, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering, or related field. Applicants should have experience in optogenetics, good programming ability in MATLAB, Python, or C++, and an ability to work in a diverse group including computational and experimental neurobiologists. Excellent oral and written communication skills, strong problem solving abilities and a strong track record of previous research are also required. Experience with custom optogenetic probe design or behavioural neuroscience is desirable
