Description

Postdoc positions in the Vision-to-Action Laboratory (Vincent Bonin, PI) at Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders in Leuven, Belgium.

The selected candidates will investigate the neural coding and circuitry basis underlying perceptual decisions and/or navigation behavior using cutting-edge approaches, including viral tracing, two-photon cellular imaging and high-density electrode recording (Neuropixel).

Our research is centered on the visual cortex and primary visual pathway, their processing and contributions to behavior. We have made significant contributions to the fields of sensory processing and neuromodulation, navigation, and neurotechnology. Ongoing projects include cortex functional architecture, multisensory integration, cortical plasticity, neuron-glia interactions, and brain development.

This is a fully-funded, research-only position that is endowed with a high level of independence. Fellows design and run their own research projects and work closely with other lab members to develop new assays and analyses, contributing with both methodological and conceptual insights. Fellows interact broadly with researchers at NERF and partner labs at VIB and KU Leuven. Career advancement activities such as presentations at international scientific events, writing of funding proposals and organization of workshops are strongly encouraged.
