A postdoctoral research position (2+ years) is available to study synaptic, cellular, and network properties of the retina in the lab of Tim Gollisch at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Munich-Martinsried. We study information processing and neural coding in the retinal network with a combination of electrophysiological and computational approaches. Experimental methods include extracellular multi-electrode array recordings and intracellular whole-cell patch-clamp recordings in the isolated, whole-mount retina under visual stimulation. For more information about the group, please visit http://www.neuro.mpg.de/english/junior/visualcode/.

We are looking for a highly committed scientist with experience in whole-cell patch-clamp recordings to strengthen the group's experimental side. In addition, an interest in computational approaches to neuronal data analysis and modeling would be welcome. Applicants should have a PhD in biology, physics, or a related area and a publication record indicating the potential to develop independent research.

The successful candidate will be part of a stimulating, lively, and international scientific environment provided by the Max Planck Institute (http://www.neuro.mpg.de) as well as the nearby university and Munich Center for Neurosciences (http://www.mcn.lmu.de). The research group is also associated with the Munich Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (http://www.bccn-muenchen.de), which provides an additional platform for interactions with scientists within the Munich area and beyond.

To apply, please send an email to Dr. Tim Gollisch (tgollisch at neuro.mpg.de<mailto:tgollisch at neuro.mpg.de>) and include a statement of research interests, a CV, and contact information for two or three references.
