A fully funded 3-year PhD studentship is available to work with Dr Shuzo
Sakata at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK.

This PhD project concerns a large dataset of in vivo silicon probe
recordings with optogenetic tagging from the mouse auditory system across
age. By applying advanced statistical approaches, we aim to better
understand how state-dependent and cell-type-specific information
processing in the auditory system can change over multiple timescales.

In this project, data analysis with computer programs (e.g., Python,
MATLAB) is an essential component. A successful candidate should have or
expect to have an Honours Degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in
Computational Neuroscience, Physics, Data Science, Computer Science,
Statistics or related fields. During their PhD, they will also have an
excellent opportunity to learn about in vivo experimental approaches as
well as neurotechnology.

In the first instance, candidates may send their application to Dr Shuzo
Sakata (shuzo.sakata at strath.ac.uk), including a CV and cover letter,
detailing their motivation for this particular PhD project and their career
