Neural Circuits, Synaptic Physiology and Behaviour
Our research is focused on determining the cellular and synaptic basis of behaviour. To this end, we employ state-of-the-art methods (Lee et al., 2009; Burgalossi et al., 2011) to record intracellularly and juxtacellularly from single neurons in freely-behaving animals, in combination with anatomical, molecular and optogenetic techniques.
Selected Publications: _Burgalossi et al.,Neuron (2010) 68:473-87_ _Burgalossi et al.,Neuron (2011) 70:773-86_ _Burgalossi et al, Nature Protocols (2012) 7:1351-65_ _Burgalossi and Brecht M. Curr Opin Neurobiol (2014) (in press)_ _Ray, Naumann, Burgalossi et al., Science* (2014) (ahead of print)_
The successful candidate will explore the circuit structure and synaptic mechanisms involved in spatial cognitive behaviours, and more generally in learning and memory. Candidates with strong quantitative background (e.g. Physics, Computer Science, Bioinformatics) and good programming skills are particularly encouraged to apply. Prior experience in neuroscience is desirable but not essential.
Applications should contain a brief statement of research experience and interests, CV, and names of at least two referees. Please send your application electronically as a single PDF file to email@example.com.
