Postdoctoral position

in the Team “Neural coding in the auditory system”
(Dr. Jérémie Barral , Institut de l’Audition, Paris, France)



The Barral lab studies how neuronal information is propagated along the auditory pathway from a physical perspective both at the levels of the peripheral auditory system and of the central nervous system.

The lab is looking for a motivated postdoc to study information processing in the mice auditory system using tools including 2-photon stimulation, optogenetics, multielectrode array recordings, and computational analyses.

Our goal is to develop a 2-photon patterned stimulation microscope to stimulate hair cells optogenetically in vivo.

Successful candidates will help design and execute a research program aimed at understanding how sound information is propagated along the auditory pathway.

The position is initially for 1 year but can be extended for up to 4 years.

The candidate is also expected to apply for alternative funding sources.

We encourage women and minorities to apply.

Both French and international candidates are welcome.



Start date:

Early 2019 until position is filled.





We are looking for individuals who want to study neural coding in the context of hearing and who meet the following criteria:
1) Ph.D. in neuroscience, biophysics, engineering or related field.
2) Experience in at least two the following areas: in vivo electrophysiology, 2-photon imaging, optogenetics, microscopy.
3) Enthusiasm, curiosity, ambition, and happy to work in a team.

Please send a brief letter of interest describing how your current experience, skills, and future goals align with this position, along with a C.V. and contact information of two potential references to
