The Comparative Social Neuroscience lab has an outstanding opportunity for a Postdoctoral position (full-time for 2 years). The lab aims at shedding light on the neural mechanisms of empathy by combining studies in humans and rodents using a broad array of techniques.
We are looking for a student with very good Matlab programming skills, and good knowledge of data analysis and statistics approaches to help with the analyses of very large in vivo calcium imaging datasets.
Developing a setup for behavioral training in mice. The ambitious goal is to build up new hardware and software and a state-of-the-art setup. Once the setup is ready, this project includes animal handling and training, and the analysis of data.
Rodent behavioral testing and analysis; In vivo fast-scan cyclic voltammetry; Optogenetics and pharmacogenetics; Deep-brain stimulation; Lesion studies; In vivo electrophysiology; In vivo microdialysis; Immunohistochemistry. Please have a look at our group site for more detailed information.
Animal handling and training, programming, extracellular recordings and/or two-photon imaging, data analysis, possibly extended with histological techniques and microscopy.
