Thomas Euler and I have a postdoc position available.
Applications are sought for a Postdoc position for a collaborative
project in the groups of Thomas Euler and Philipp Berens at the
Institute for Ophthalmic Research , the CIN, and the Bernstein Centre
for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) of the University of Tübingen. The
project is part of the DFG Priority Programme „Computational
Connectomics” (SPP 2041).
The goal of the project is to combine functional imaging of excitatory
and inhibitory signals with computational modeling based on connectomics
data from electron microscopy to study the role of amacrine cell
circuits in the retina.
The candidate for the position ...
must have a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. neuroscience)
must have experimental skills ideally in functional 2P imaging,
alternatively in electrophysiology
has a strong background in neuroscience at the circuit or systems
level, ideally in the visual system
is proficient in modern programming languages (i.e. Python)
is experienced in data analysis.
The ideal candidate is self-motivated, independent, and able to learn
quickly, is proficient in English verbal and written communication and
