The Schröder Lab at University of Sussex, UK, offers a position for a

Postdoctoral researcher

to study information processing in the early visual system of mice using two-photon imaging, electrophysiology (Neuropixels probes), and opto- and chemogenetic manipulations.

The lab’s goal is to determine how behavioural and internal states like arousal are integrated with visual responses in the retina and superior colliculus. We want to discover the underlying mechanisms and the purpose of this integration in terms of visual processing and the animal’s behavioural demands.

Your profile
• Phd degree in neuroscience or in physics, computer science or engineering with a keen interest in neuroscience
• You will take ownership of the project and drive it forward
• Experience in experimental biology and quantitative data analysis including programming in Python, Matlab or similar
• Experience with two-photon imaging and/or extracellular electrophysiology preferrable

Our offer
The Schröder lab opens its doors in January 2021. The researcher has the opportunity:
• to make use of the lab’s own two-photon microscopy and Neuropixels recording setups;
• to benefit from the PI’s active support in research and her mentoring in career development;
• to collaborate with other labs in Sussex Neuroscience (

Salary: £33,797 to £38,017 per annum, depending on experience.
