The newly-established laboratory of Jan Gründemann at the Department of Biomedicine in Basel is searching for two highly motivated PhD students to study neural circuit mechanisms of sensory integration upon learning and memory formation. We combine state of the art circuit neuroscience tools like opto- and pharmacogenetics with single and two-photon imaging techniques to reveal how sensory integration in deep brain areas affects learning and behaviour. Potential candidates should hold a Master's degree in biomedical / natural sciences and have a strong passion to understand how our brain integrates information from the environment on the level of single cells as well as neuronal ensembles.
Both positions will start January 2018 and are funded for 4 years. Salaries are according to the guidelines of the Swiss National Science Foundation (both positions 100 %).
Applications should include a cover letter, CV and references.
