directed by prof. Mathew E. Diamond, announces the immediate opening of
TPLL is situated in the International School for Advanced Studies (known
as SISSA) in Trieste, Italy.
The research is funded by a European Research Council Advanced grant;
salary is competitive and abundant resources are available.
The project will explorethe neuronal basis of tactile perception by
collecting activity with microelectrode arrays from multiple regions
of cerebral cortex in rats as they perform touch-guided behavioral tasks
such as texture classification and vibration working memory.
Manipulating perception through optogenetics is a key aim.
Candidates should have experience in relevant methods
(behavioral training, neurophysiology, optogenetics, computational
