Cortical Neurophysiology of Memory Laboratory at the Center for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) at the University of Tuebingen (Germany) is looking for a highly motivated individuals for a PhD and Post-Doctoral positions.

The research group is part of the newly established interdisciplinary scientific environment (
The candidates will be involved into cutting edge research on network mechanisms of memory. Research in the lab is focused on the mechanisms of information representation within and propagation between different cortical networks. Specifically, the group is exploring the neurophysiological mechanisms of information transfer within and between the neocortex and hippocampus, as one of the key questions in learning and memory research.
Its approach employs simultaneous recordings of multiple (>50) neurons and local field potentials in different cortical areas in behaving rats with state-of-the-art multichannel electrodes followed by advanced signal processing and data mining aimed to uncover the rules that govern communication between these structures.
Electrophysiology is combined with various brain activity perturbation techniques and quantitative control of animal behavior.
Applicants are expected to be creative and capable of independent analytical thinking. A strong background in biology/physiology and/or math/physics/engineering is required. Solid experience in electrophysiology, animal behavior or data analysis (signal processing, multivariate statistics etc) would be a plus. Fluency in English is required.
Applications should include a CV, a brief statement of research experience and interests, publications list and names of at least 2 referees. Please, send your application electronically as a single Adobe Acrobat (pdf) file to Dr Anton Sirota (anton(dot)sirota(at)cin(dot)uni-tuebingen(dot)de)
