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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
