Subject: [Comp-neuro] Research Associate in Neuroscience,       University of Leicester

Dear Colleagues,

We are recruiting for a Research Associate here at the Centre for Systems Neuroscience, University of Leicester.

This position is supported by the Human Frontier Science Program and aims to investigate how the brain creates conceptual knowledge, bridging systems, cognitive and theoretical neuroscience. You will join an international research team, working alongside colleagues from Rockefeller University (Winrich Freiwald), The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Haim Sompolinsky) and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, Trieste; Mathew Diamond and Davide Zoccolan) studying cross-species (rats, monkeys and humans) comparisons of experimental data, complimented by computational modelling.

You will work on the analysis and collection of multiple single neuron recordings in epileptic patients (which are implanted with intracranial electrodes for clinical reasons) performing different cognitive tasks, and contribute towards the study of concept cells (a.k.a. Jennifer Aniston neurons; see e.g. Quian Quiroga et al, Nature 2005; Quian Quiroga; Nature Reviews Neuroscience 2012). You may also contribute to related projects using non-invasive scalp EEG recordings (e.g. Navajas et al, J. Neuroscience 2013) and/or electrophysiology and 2-photon imaging recordings in mice.

You should have very good quantitative skills, a strong background in neuroscience and, ideally, a good experience with neurophysiology recordings.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Sue Atkinson, Research Centre Manager, sam45 at le.ac.uk or 0116 252 3249.
