A postdoctoral research position is available in the research group of Prof. Tim Gollisch at the University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany.

The position is funded through the Collaborative Research Center (“Sonderforschungsbereich”) 889, which has recently been established in Göttingen and will provide a lively and integrative platform for investigating neuronal processing in sensory systems. The research group of Prof. Gollisch studies sensory processing and neural coding in the retinal network with a combination of electrophysiological and computational approaches. Experimental methods include extracellular multi-electrode array recordings, intracellular whole-cell patch-clamp recordings, and two-photon calcium imaging in the isolated, whole-mount retina of mice and amphibians. All recordings are performed while the retina is stimulated with various visual patterns. A strong focus of the group is to combine these experiments with state-of-the-art tools for data analysis and modeling. For more information about the group, see http://retina.uni-goettingen.de.

A highly motivated scientist with a good background in electrophysiology or computational neuroscience is needed. In particular, a strong interest in combining experimental and computational tools to neuroscience is required. Applicants should have a PhD in neuroscience, biology, physics, or a related area and a publication record indicating the potential to develop independent research.

For more information or to apply, please send an email to Prof. Tim Gollisch (tim(dot)gollisch(at)med(dot)uni-goettingen(dot)de) and include a CV, contact information for two or three references, and a statement about your motivations and research interests. Applications of female applicants are particularly encouraged according to the equal-opportunity concept of the CRC 889.
