*PhD Student (f/m/d) Circuit Neuroscience*
*Code 1828/2020/7*

The research group ‘Neural Circuit Computations’, led by Jan Gründemann, aims to understand how ever-changing environmental stimuli are represented and computed in the brain to elucidate key principals of multisensory integration upon memory formation. To address this question, we combine state-of-the-art circuit neuroscience tools like opto- and pharmacogenetics with single and two-photon imaging techniques to reveal computational frameworks of sensory integration in deep brain areas and their effects on behaviour and learning in health and disease (see also https://www.dzne.de/en/research/research-areas/fundamental-research/rese...).

*Your tasks*
Successful candidates will actively participate in study design, experimental work as well as data generation and analyses. They will work on their independent research projects and present their results at local, national, and international conferences and will prepare manuscripts for publication in international scientific journals.

We are looking for two PhD Students with a strong interest in Circuit Neuroscience. Applicants should hold a Master’s degree in Life Sciences, Physical Sciences or Computer Sciences. Prior experience with the relevant experimental techniques (e.g. imaging approaches, electrophysiology, stereotaxic surgery, mouse behaviour or computational neuroscience tools) as well as coding skills will be considered a plus but are not a prerequisite. Extensive training will be provided. We are seeking highly motivated individuals with excellent organizational and communication skills and very good language proficiency in English.

*We offer*
The DZNE in Bonn offers an excellent scientific infrastructure with state-of-the-art research facilities. Team members will benefit from an international, collaborative environment alongside other labs focusing on systems neuroscience and neurodegenerative disorders, both within the institute and at neighbouring university departments. PhD students in the lab will receive extensive scientific training and will additionally be provided with opportunities for career development at the DZNE Career Centre. Salary and social benefits will be comparable to other research institutes. The positions are available from October 2020 and are initially limited to 3 years.

We are looking forward to your application consisting of a cover letter stating your motivation and research interests, a CV with publication list, as well as two of the usual references. Interviews will first be conducted via video conference, followed by a possible on-site visit to Bonn. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled. For further information and informal enquiries, please contact jan.grundemann@dzne.de.

You will obtain special skills and knowledge for your scientific qualification at DZNE. The DZNE is an equal opportunity employer. It is committed to employing disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply.
