Science jobs from Gilad Silberberg, Karolinska institute.:
Postdoc position in Electrophysiology is currently available at the Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm Sweden.

Research: Our lab uses electrophysiological, morphological, optogenetic, and computational methods to study neural microcircuits in the neocortex and basal-ganglia. In particular we are interested in the dynamic properties of neuronal microcircuits underlying sensory and motor processing. We study the dynamic interactions between different types of excitatory and inhibitory neurons in order to unravel the way neural networks are structured and dynamically orchestrated. Lab website:

Knowledge of neuroanatomy, imaging, and computer programming are highly advantageous. The project will involve multineuron patch-clamp recordings in vitro neocortex and basal ganglia combined with optogenetics and calcium imaging. The project is funded by a grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation.

Application: Should include the following:

1. A complete curriculum vitae, including date of the thesis defense, title of the thesis, previous academic positions, academic title, current position, academic distinctions, and committee work 2.
