Job ID


Department : Developmental Neurobiology
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position funded by the Wellcome Trust.

The successful applicant will pursue a research project with the goal of understanding how brain-wide neural circuits lead to flexible cognitive behaviours in mice. The techniques employed will include state-of-the-art chronic in-vivo two photon calcium imaging of multiple cell classes, targeted optogenetic manipulations, viral vector based functional circuit mapping, and quantitative mouse behaviour. The successful applicant will benefit from the collaborative, friendly and interactive culture of the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology at King's College London, and will have the opportunity to develop collaborations with the strong developmental, molecular and genetic research groups at the Centre.

Candidates should have a strong research track record. Experience with in-vivo two photon imaging, rodent behaviour and analysis of complex datasets will be highly valued. Candidates with programming skills, or with backgrounds in computational neuroscience, physics or engineering are encouraged to apply.

In addition to the research statement and CV in the application form, applicants are requested to include a statement (400 word limit) describing the specific research questions and experimental directions the candidate considers important for his/her future work in identifying neural circuits of behaviour.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 24 months

This is a full-time post, 35 hours per week

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.
