PhD Position in Neuroscience University of Bonn

Description

Position: A PhD position is available immediately in the Max Planck Research Group Neural Circuits, Caesar, for a highly motivated graduate student interested in studying the role of neuromodulators in neural circuit function across behavioral states in health and disease. The doctoral candidate will utilize modern two-photon imaging, optogenetics, and electrophysiology techniques to investigate neural population activity at cellular resolution in behaving animals, particularly Drosophila Melanogaster and later on mice. We expect the student to show diligence towards and enthusiasm for furthering the project aims. The candidate must also possess strong problem-solving and communication skills (in both written and verbal English) and be willing to work in cooperation with the rest of the team. 

Education/Experience: We are looking for graduate students with a strong quantitative background in neuroscience and/or biophysics. Masters graduates from related fields (such as physics, engineering or chemistry) are also encouraged to apply. Proficiency in programming languages and the willingness to hone programming skills is preferred.
