The Institute for Auditory Neuroscience and InnerEarLab of the University Medical Center Göttingen (Germany) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in optical analysis of cochlear optogenetics - available until for 24 months, full-time, salary according to TV-L.

The work focusses on the use of optogenetics to restore activity in auditory neurons. The successful candidate will employ imaging and modelling tools to further develop cochlear optogenetics for future optical cochlear implants. The scientist can build on existing infrastructure such as virus-production, virus-injection, in vitro and in-vivo electrophysiology, as well as and established optical methods at the Institute for Auditory Neuroscience.

We are looking for excellent and highly motivated applicants with a strong background in physics, biomedical engineering, or computer science. The ability to work in an interdisciplinary (combining molecular, structural, physiological, and theoretical approaches) and international team of researchers is required. The position is available for 24 months initially.
The Göttingen Campus is a leading Neuroscience Center hosting numerous prestigious and internationally renowned research institutions. This includes the University and its Medical Center, three lifescience Max Planck Institutes, the European Neuroscience Institute, and the German Primate Center. The Institute for Auditory Neuroscience & InnerEarLab is tightly integrated in the Campus with research groups hosted also at non-university institutions and runs numerous stimulating collaborations on Campus such as within the collaborative sensory research center SFB 889, the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, and the Cluster of Excellence "Multiscale Bioimaging: From Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable Cells".

Women are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants with disabilities and equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
