A postdoctoral position funded by the BBSRC is available in the laboratory of Miguel Maravall to study the relationships between neuronal activity, sensory inputs and behavioural signals in the somatosensory cortex of mice.

The project investigates neuronal responses in mice performing goal-directed sensory discrimination tasks. Mice must distinguish between sensory stimuli delivered to their whiskers and neural activity in the cerebral cortex is measured using two-photon imaging.

The successful candidate will have a profile with at least one of the following:

  • either expertise relevant to neurobiology, with a track record of experimental skills in optical imaging, viral expression or related techniques;
  • or expertise in computational techniques with an interest in quantitative neural data analysis and programming experience in Python, Matlab or a similar language.

We are looking for someone who is proactive and will drive the work forward, and is positive, eager to think creatively, and keen to work in our highly collaborative team ( More information about the lab and PI can be found here Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Miguel Maravall at
