Please, bring it to the attention of the interested potential candidates.


Laboratory “Physiology of Cortico-Hippocampal Interactions” at the 
Center for Integrative Neurosciences (CIN) at the University of 
Tuebingen (Germany) is looking for a highly motivated and bright PhD 
students and PostDocs.

Our group is part of the interdisciplinary scientific environment 
(http://www.cin.uni-tuebingen.de). Research in the lab is focused on the 
mechanisms of learning and memory. Specifically, we are exploring the 
mechanisms of information transfer within and between the neocortex and 
hippocampus. Our approach employs state-of-the-art multichannel 
extracellular recording in freely moving rodents, quantitative behavior 
analysis, optogenetic and electrical perturbation and advanced signal 
processing and data mining.

Applicants are expected to be creative, communicative and capable of 
independent analytical thinking. Background in biology/physiology and/or 
physics/engineering/computer science is required. Experience in in vivo 
physiology (electrophysiology or optical imaging) is a plus.

Applications should include a CV, a brief statement of research 
experience and interests, academic achievements and names of at least 2 
referees. Please, send your application electronically as a single .pdf 
file to Dr Anton Sirota (anton.sirota at cin.uni-tuebingen.de 
<mailto:anton.sirota at cin.uni-tuebingen.de>).

Positions are available immediately until filled with qualified candidates.
