The Functional Neuroimaging Research Line, at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT in Rovereto, Italy, is seeking a Postdoc interested in studying the neural basis of connectivity disruption in brain connectopathies.
Our research is aimed at identifying the general neural and cellular principles governing the assembly of brain-wide functional connectivitys. We address these questions at the level of identified cell types by combining neural manipulations with electrophysiological recordings, functional MRI and cutting-edge neuro-computational approaches. For reference to recent work relevant to this position, please see Canella et al., BiorXive (2020), Giorgi et al, Cell Reports (2018).
The candidate must have a relevant PhD Degree in Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Genetics, Bioengineering, Molecular Biology, or comparable fields. Expertise in electrophysiological recordings or opto/chemo-genetics, and the ability to interface with both experimental and computational neuroscientists, will be highly valued.
