Postdoctoral Position in Neural Circuits
University of Bonn, Department of Neurology


Position: A full-time postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Max Planck Research Group Neural Circuits, Caesar, for a highly motivated scientist interested in studying the role of neuromodulators in neural circuit function across behavioral states in health and disease. The candidate will utilize modern two-photon imaging, optogenetics, and electrophysiology techniques to investigate neural population activity at cellular resolution in behaving animals, particularly Drosophila Melanogaster and later on mice. Experience working with flies or mice will prove useful. We expect the candidate to be capable of independently designing and executing targeted research experiments that further the project aims. Experience of supervising research students in their daily experimental and dissertation work is an advantage. The candidate should also possess excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills (in both written and verbal English) and be willing to work in cooperation with the rest of the team. 

Education/Experience: We are looking for candidates with a strong quantitative background in neuroscience and/or biophysics. PhD graduates from related fields (such as physics, engineering or chemistry) are also encouraged to apply. Proficiency in programming languages and the willingness to hone programming skills is preferred.

About the Seelig Laboratory: The Seelig lab is committed to elucidating the impact of neuromodulators on circuits underlying sensorimotor integration. Similar to the mammalian brain, the fly brain is broadly innervated by neuromodulatory neurons. Taking advantage of the lower numerical complexity of the fly brain should allow us to get a quantitative understanding of the impact of neuromodulators on complete neural circuits underlying sensorimotor integration across different behavioral states in health and disease. The laboratory is funded by the Max Planck Society.
