The lab is characterized by a strong integration between experimental approaches and theory/computation, and by a friendly, collaborative attitude. We have a strong network of international collaborations. Information on the lab may be found at

The 4 research project will have an experimental profile (2, by preference candidates with 2-photon imaging and/or high density electrophysiology expertise), theory (1, by preference a candidate with theoretical physics/mathematics/computational neuroscience background) and 1 mixed theoretical/experimental project.
