A postdoctoral position funded by an ERC starting grant INTRASPACE is available in the group “Neuronal Coding of Space and Memory” headed by Jérôme Epsztein.
The successfull candidate will perform in vivo intracellular recordings (patch-clamp) of hippocampal cell activity in rodents navigating virtual reality environments to better understand the cellular mechanisms of spatial information coding. We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic candidate with strong expertise in in vivo electrophysiology and behaviour.
The successful candidate will join the Epsztein team, which focuses on understanding how spatial information is represented in the hippocampal formation and used for spatial navigation.
Holding a PhD in neuroscience
Having expertise in in vivo or in vitro electrophysiology
Having a good publication track record
Having a good level of English
Good programming skills are a plus
