[Comp-neuro] Postdoc Position in Retina Research / Computational Neuroscience

Gollisch, Tim tim.gollisch at med.uni-goettingen.de
Fri Aug 11 12:14:18 CEST 2017

A postdoc position is available in the lab of Tim Gollisch at the University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany. The group studies information processing and neural coding in the neural network of the vertebrate retina, using a combination of electrophysiological and computational approaches. Experimental methods include extracellular multielectrode-array recordings and intracellular recordings from neurons in the isolated retina (mouse and salamander), using both wild-type retinas and optogenetic retina models of vision restoration therapy. A strong focus of the group is to combine these experiments with novel tools for data analysis and mathematical modeling.

Our research group if part of the strong and lively neuroscience research community of Göttingen, including the university, several Max Planck Institutes, the German Primate Center, and the European Neuroscience Institute. We are also part of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Göttingen and of the Collaborative Research Center "Cellular Mechanisms of Sensory Processing" (http://sfb889.uni-goettingen.de/). For more information about the research group, please visit the group's website: http://www.retina.uni-goettingen.de/.

We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a good background in electrophysiology or computational/theoretical neuroscience. Experience in both of these areas is a bonus, but not required. Experience in computer programming or in scripting of data analysis routines is also a plus.

The position is for 2 years initially with the possibility for renewal. Please send your application to Tim Gollisch (tim.gollisch at med.uni-goettingen.de<mailto:tim.gollisch at med.uni-goettingen.de>), including a CV, a statement of what interests you about the group's work, and contact details for two references.

The University Medical Center Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer, and women are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants with disabilities and equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
