A postdoctoral researcher or staff scientist positions to reconstruct cerebellar neurons is available in the Computational Neuroscience Unit of Prof. Erik De Schutter at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, Japan.
We are looking for a postdoc with a neuroscience background to reconstruct neurons using semi-automated methods and analyze the morphologies obtained. Projects include reconstruction of single neurons based on STED microscopy and of populations of neurons using confocal imaging. Experience in neural reconstruction is essential, additional experience in microscopy and/or electrophysiology is a plus. You will collaborate with scientists at OIST and abroad in addition to the daily interaction with computational researchers and students in the lab who are working on cerebellar modeling projects, analyzing cerebellar recordings or developing software.
We offer attractive financial and working conditions in an English language graduate university that emphasizes interdisciplinary research, located on the beautiful subtropical island of Okinawa. Send curriculum vitae, a summary of research interests and experience, and the names of three referees to Prof. Erik De Schutter.
