The Special Lab Primate Neurobiology at the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology in Magdeburg (Germany) offers a PhD student position (f/m/d) for the project “In search of the neuronal basis of temporal binding: How are synaptic depression and neuronal adaptation linked in the auditory cortex?” for a 3-year fixed-term appointment with a salary of TV-L E13 (65%) starting March 1st. The project is part of a DFG-funded project that aims at identifying the neural and computational basis of temporal binding and audiomotor learning in the auditory cortex of Old World monkeys. The doctoral student will perform invasive multi-electrode single cell recordings from the monkey brain and will be supervised by Dr. Michael Brosch. The project will contribute to computational modelling work supervised by Dr. Reinhard König in the Special Lab Non-Invasive Brain Imaging. Candidates are expected to have a completed university degree (master, diploma or similar qualification) in neuroscience, physics, biology, psychology, engineering or similar discipline. Preferred candidates will have experience in training Old World monkeys on behavioral tasks, and in microelectrode recordings of neuronal activity. For informal inquiries about the project and post, please contact Prof. Dr. Michael Brosch ( Please send CV, research profile, list of publications, and two letters of recommendation. Your employment, salary and employee benefits comply with the collective pay agreement (German TV-L). Equal opportunities as well as compatibility of family and work are part of our HR policy. Severely disabled applicants with equivalent occupational aptitude will be considered preferentially.
