The Functional Neuroimaging Research Line ( at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Rovereto, Italy, is seeking postdoctoral researcher interested in studying the neural basis of connectivity disruption in brain connectopathy.
Our research is aimed at identifying the general neural and cellular principles governing the assembly of brain-wide functional connectivity. We address these questions at the level of identified cell types by combining neural manipulations in rodents with electrophysiological recordings, functional MRI and cutting-edge neuro-computational approaches. For reference to recent work relevant to this position, please see Canella et al., BiorXive (2020), Gutierreaz-Barragan et al., Current Biology (2019), Giorgi et al, Cell Reports (2018).
The candidate must have a relevant PhD Degree in Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Genetics, Bioengineering, Molecular Biology, or comparable fields. Hands-on expertise with in vivo experimental method is required. Formal training on electrophysiological recordings or opto/chemo-genetics, together with the ability to interface with computational neuroscientists will be highly valued. Salary will be commensurate to qualifications and experience and in line with international standards.
The successful applicant will join a thriving neuroscience environment at the Center for Neuroscience and Cognitive Systems of IIT, in partnership with the University of Trento (Cimec,
Please send your application (full CV, a brief research statement and names and contacts of 2 referees) by email to, quoting “Postdoctoral position in systems neuroscience, ” in the email subject. The deadline for applications is December 31th, 2020.
