Description

The Department of Neurophysiology at the Medical Faculty of the Ruhr University Bochum, hosts a vibrant and talented team of neuroscientists from a variety of scientific backgrounds that implement multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the mechanisms underlying memory. A PhD position is currently available for a candidate that has a strong interest in, and ideally, prior training in the area of in vivo electrophysiology in the rodent brain. The position will be funded at the level of E13/65% (german salary system) for 3 years. Admission to the International Graduate School of Neuroscience (www.rub.de/igsn) will be considered. The PhD project will focus on the interaction of sensory and subcortical systems with the hippocampus in the enabling of long-term associative memory. Along with in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, chemogenetics and rodent behavioural paradigms will be implemented. Experience with Matlab and/or electrophysiological signal analysis is advantageous. Applications (including motivation letter, CV, proof of degrees, publication list, grade transcripts, 2 referees) should be directed to Head of Department, Prof. Dr. Denise Manahan-Vaughan (LMR@rub.de).
