We have a senior postdoc position (“Akademischer Rat auf Zeit”) for a period of 3 years, with the possibility for extension (up to 6 years total). The successful candidate will initially collaborate on investigations of visual processing within the thalamo-cortico-thalamic loop in the mouse visual system, building upon our recent results, accepted for publication in Nature Neuroscience. The project will combine genetic circuit manipulations with extracellular recordings in mouse V1 and dLGN. In addition, the successful candidate will take a leading role in the supervision of the other ongoing projects in the lab. It is expected that over time the successful candidate will attract third party funding to develop, within the lab’s infrastructure and general interests, her independent research. While the lab is an experimental neuroscience lab, it embraces the systems neuroscience approach and has several fruitful national and international collaborations with computational neuroscientists.
There is some flexibility in the starting date, with a preference for the second half of 2022.

We also have one PhD position to offer in the 2022 GSN recruitment period. The position is DFG-funded, primarily supervised by Laura, but is part of a larger team science project. The project seeks for “Natural stimuli for mice”, combining eye tracking during free behaviour, electrophysiology and the analysis of naturalistic movies, and is as part of CRC1233 Robust Vision with Thomas Euler and Matthias Bethge, University of Tübingen

Are you curious about how the neural circuits in the visual system contribute to visual processing, perception, and behavior? We are inviting applications from motivated Bachelor and Master students to join us for lab rotations and thesis workProgramming skills are necessary.
