[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral position - two photon imaging

Simon Schultz s.schultz at imperial.ac.uk
Mon Nov 9 10:42:30 CET 2015


Please note that applications for this position close on Thursday 12th 
November

Salary Range: £33,860 - £42,830 per annum

South Kensington Campus

Full time, fixed-term until the 30th November 2018

The Centre for Neurotechnology forms part of the cross-departmental 
Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London. The 
Centre, in association with the Department of Bioengineering, hosts 
world-class experimental facilities for research at the interface 
between neuroscience and engineering. The Centre has recently initiated 
a philanthropically funded project on the application of biomedical 
engineering principles to understand how the progression of Alzheimer's 
disease affects information processing in cortical circuits, and test 
new therapeutic interventions.

Applications are invited for the above post to work with Dr Simon 
Schultz on in vivo two photon imaging of calcium signals in the 
dendrites of neocortical pyramidal cells. The aim of this work is to 
understand how synaptic integration changes during the progression of 
Alzheimer's disease, and to test the effects on dendrites of new 
therapeutic strategies being developed for the treatment of Alzheimer's.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree or equivalent in neuroscience, 
physics, engineering, or similar. Prior experience with two photon 
imaging or whole cell patch clamp electrophysiology in a neuroscience 
context is a requirement. Preference will be given to candidates with 
both a strong experimental background, and experience in quantitative 
neurophysiological data analysis.

This post will be based at the South Kensington Campus.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Simon Schultz, email: 
s.schultz at imperial.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to 
this email address will not be accepted
