The position is open for two candidates with excellent track records in the field of systems neuroscience, molecular neuroscience or stem cell-based brain research. We are particularly looking for candidates with research focus that helps to bridge research between rodent and human neuroscience.
We offer an international, inspiring, and supportive research environment, along with excellent research facilities and in-house state-of-the art technologies. NC hosts state-of-art infrastructures and facilities for rodent brain research. These include neuronal stem cell core, multiphoton microscopes, optogenetics, in vivo imaging and electrophysiology, as well behavioral facilities. The members of NC have also an access to human brain imaging.
The qualification requirements include an applicable doctoral degree, postdoctoral training from a relevant field in neuroscience, and an excellent scientific track record with high-impact publications in the top journals of the field.
We expect successful candidates to carry out independent research line, engage in multidisciplinary research collaborations with other NC research groups and with the Helsinki neuroscience community, and participate in the supervision of students. Candidates should be able to take the advantages of the infrastructures and networks available at NC.
