||PhD position at the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center
A PhD position is available to work at the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (CRNL) on a project investigating how sensory information is transferred and gated from the periphery to the cortex in wakefulness and sleep, using the anatomically well-defined whisker somatosensory system as a model.
This project will combine state-of-art electrophysiological methods with optogenetics in head-fixed mice, and will also involve the use of anatomical and behavioral techniques.
For further details on the project, please contact Dr Nadia Urbain.
The candidate should hold a Masters degree, with a background in either biological sciences or physics/engineering.
The ideal candidate has previous experience in experimental work or signal analysis.
Programming skills are desired but not required.
We are searching for an applicant with a high commitment and curiosity about neuroscientific questions.
Interested candidates are invited to send their application including:
letter of intent
list of completed university courses and the name of a scientific referee
Applications will be evaluated until position is filled.
